A snowman recipe

It's my challenge again at Winter Wonderland this week and I have a recipe of 4 papers, 3 snowflakes and a snowman (or woman). I bought these papers at last week's show. They are Daisy and Dandelion from last year I think but they are new to me this year so I don;t mind. I love the rich colours of the burgundy and green. I often go with blue for a snowman card so thought this made a change for me. The snowman is coloured with PMs and Sakura goldstar pen with lots of glitter. The large snowflake I made on my crafting day with Lynsey using her spellbinders die and diamond dust. The other are MS punched with pearls. I used my new MS snowflake border punch again and added a Pollycraft sentiment. I used the fab sketch at Sketch Saturday and am also entering it into Bah Humbug for a Christmas carol or song, which is Frosty the Snowman.
I made the top 3 at MAWTT this week, thanks girls. Have a great weekend everyone.
