Fun in the snow

Nina, the owner/designer at Paper Cupcakes, has drawn some really cute snowmen. This one is a freebie she gave out, and the current challenge at the Paper Cupcakes blog There's Magic in the Air is to use this guy on a card, and include a snowflake.  Well, I included enough snowflakes for a blizzard here.

The image is colored with pencils, plus a silver gel pen on the buttons.  I added blue highlights to the embossed piece and sponged the edges of the main image and tag with Bliss Blue ink.  I didn't want this to be a monocrhomatic card, so I decided the mat the main image on a contrasting color.  It's a peachy shade of orange, to pick up the orange from the carrot nose.

This is one of those cards that could work as a Christmas card but doesn't have to be.  The "joy" sentiment seems appropriate in either case.
