Don't melt

It's hot outside. Think snow.
This card uses a cute snowman from I Heart Stamps and also uses their weekly sketch. The snowman is colored in pencils with Wink of Stella added to the white on the snowman for sparkle.  I hand-stitched the snowflake elements on the side, using three strands of floss. I tried adding Wink of Stella on top of the floss, but I'm not sure how visible it is.

Sketch158This card is for these challenges:
Rudolph Days -- Christmas
I Heart Sketches #158 - sketch
Catch the Bug -- color challenge (blues and grays)
