Snowmen fall from Heaven unassembled..... my last Christmas card!

Hello! 12 days until Christmas day!!!!! (sorry I keep counting down, I'm so excited!)

Yesterday I got really frustrated....  I had a card idea in my head, chose image, chose papers... coloured image, tried to put card together... it wasn't working!!!! and then I decided to add some embossing powder to the snowman... and my heating tool decided to die on me!!! (maybe is the fuse... not sure yet!). And you know what? I'm happy that it didn't work the first time (well, not happy about my heating tool going bonkers...). after all that, I put card together, and I like how it has turned up!

I used this image from Kenny K, it was a freebie from their website! bargain!
and then I just went crazy with the papers! I don't know how many times I've moved these papers around!  I got all the papers as freebies in card-making magazines. The Vellum paper it's been in my stash forever.

As always, I coloured the Snowman with my Promarkers.
For the hat I used: cornflower,powder blue and warm grey 1.
For the carrot nose: peach and spice.
The tongue: pink carnation.
Scarf: cornflower and azure.
Gloves: Icicle and Warm grey 1.

I used some white gel pen here and there to highlight.

Dies I used are: Snowflake from Joy Crafts and a scallop circle nesting die for the glittery vellum paper.
The "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas" ribbon is from Hobbycraft. The snowflake mesh underneath is from a local shop.
I took a golden snowflake from my stash (my last one!) and painted it white. then added a bit of glitter. I love glitter and sparkle!!!
I created the sentiment on my computer (I saw this quote on-line and I love it!).
Buttons are from Papermania.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:  

wow!!! that was a long list! I really really really love challenges!!!!!

I really hope you like the card! please leave a comment if you do!
