Nature's AC

The heat continues unabated here in the South, so let's think cool thoughts. Like snowmen.
I think this guy is so cute.  The image is from Paper Cupcakes, which sadly is no longer in business. He's colored with pencils, and the image panel is sponged with Colorbox Chalk Ice Blue ink (I used to use that all the time for sky, then kind of forgot about it when I got SU Bliss Blue).  There are stickles on the snowflake. 
The layout for this is the current Mojo Monday sketch, and I used domed snowflake stickers for the circular elements. The white strip is embossed with snowflakes, which didn't show up well -- between the embossing and reflective domes on the stickers, this was a hard card to photograph.
Everything on this card is a snippet, so I'm finally back at the Snippet Playground this week.

this card is for these challenges:

Great job with the snowflakes, too, and the whole thing came together beautifully. The color pallet was so soothing!
