Snowy Hug Tilda

I used Snowy Hug Tilda from Magnolia Stamps to create this easel card. I love snowmen this image has to be one of my most favorite snowman images. 

For the front of my card I started with a pink 5x5 card base.  I added a piece of pink and white dot patterned card stock that I backed in white card stock.  I colored the image using Spectrum Noir pens and backed it in pink and white card stock.  My fence is Magnolia Lovely Fence Doohickey Die cut out of white card stock. I just love the little hearts that run along the tops of the fence posts.  I decided to add the fence at an angle to the bottom front of the card.  Then I punched 2 snowflakes from white card stock and 2 smaller snowflakes from pink card stock.  I layered the snowflakes, added a pink gem to the center of each and added one to the upper corner of the image and the other just above the fence on the opposite side of the image. I also added 2 pink gems to the snowman for buttons.
For the inside of my card I again started with a pink card base. I added a smaller piece of pink and white dot patterned card stock backed in white card stock to the bottom half of the inside.  I stamped the sentiment on white card stock and backed it in pink and white card stock. I punched another snowflake out of white card stock and a smaller snowflake from pink card stock.  I layered them and added a pink gem to the center and added it to the corner of my sentiment.  I added 3 more pink gems to the bottom corner of the inside of my card.  I added diamond stickles to the snowflakes and to the snow on the snowman's broom.
