Christmas Chaos #2 - Sketch

This is day 2 of a funfilled week with daily Christmas themed challenges over at Catch the Bug. You can win prizes - digis and Guest designer spots - by participating in one, some or all challenges this week - head over to Catch the Bug for more information.

As it's Sunday we have a sketch for you to play with. I used the image AKV snowman - ski 2 - you can find it here in the Bugaboo store. The image is colored with Promarkers, I used ditress ink to make the sky and loose glitter for the snow. The panels are embossed using a Sizzix EF and I also added a die cut snowflake covered in glitter, made with a die from Marianne.
I machine stitched with white thread around the edges and used kraft and blue cardstock for the panels.

This card is also for these challenges:
Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge - Embossing
Crafting for all Seasons - #115 Brrr It's Cold Outside
4 Crafty Chicks - #275 Winter
QKR Stampede - #168 Use Some Glitter

It's hysterical to see snow walking with skis through snow. I LOVE IT! Obviously more adept at it than myself. I take the 'downward dog' approach to skiing.
Your card is FABULOUS, Pia! Love the holiday cheer you're spreading.
