If it snows, we can make a snowman.....

I wonder if we are going to have a white Christmas this year, it doesn't seem so though. The weather has been really erratic this year. Some days are unseasonably warm and then others are freezing cold. But we are really hoping for a white Christmas - everyone loves to make snowman.
So for this card, I started with this sketch at Totally paper Crafts

And this is what I came up with

Adorable snowman, right ? 
The papers are Recollections Christmas collection. I used a bit of gesso on the edges to soften the redness of the papers. There is some glitter on the magic stick and some liquid pearls sprinkled around in the background to represent snow.

The memory box die edges between the two papers. The sentiment is Just rite and there are a few punched out stars sprinkled around. The inside is really simple - just lined with the same paper.
