Snowie The Snowman

This week's challenge at Ooh La La is to create a card/project inspired by a Christmas song. The song I chose is FROSTY THE SNOWMAN. So I made this card using this adorable snowman stamp from Magnolia Stamps called Snowie With Snowflake. I used the colors teal, black and white to create a non traditional Christmas card. Which is perfect for the untraditional Christmas challenge at The Creative Cottage. I added both black and white dotted ribbon and dark teal ribbon. To add my snowflake charm I tied it right onto the teal ribbon. I then added crystal stickles on all the white cardstock and on the image for the glitz it up challenge at One Stitch At A Time. I then added a snowflake (white) pearl to the center of the snowflake and 3 nightfall (black) pearls to the upper right corner. The sentiment that I used is one I typed out on my computer.

Christmas is the theme at Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central. In addition to the the theme you also must use at least one item from the store. I've actually used 2 items on my card. The first is the Magnolia Stamp and the second is the stickles.

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:
