Merry Monday #19

Another Christmas card completed, thanks to the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge.  Here is the original sketch design-

My heart was set on stamping with this snowman, so I flipped the sketch to fit. All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

S238 Snow Business
B1107 Holly Christmas
X7103B Aspen Paper Packet
Z2140 Outdoor Denim Ink
Z2103 Bamboo Ink
Z2106 Blush Ink
Z2392 Sunset Marker
Z2118 Desert Sand Marker
3174 Blending Pen
C1 Cool Gray Copic Sketch
Tuxedo Black Ink by Memento
Z679 Liquid Glass
Diamond Stickles
Retired Organdy Ribbon
Unknown MIni Buttons
Unknown Snowflake Eyelets 
Z1104 Clear Sparkles
Die-namics Icicle Border by MFT

Design Tip-I colored my snowman with a variety of inks.  Most of the image was colored using a blending pen and pulling ink from a stamp pad or marker.  I outlined the image with a Copic Sketch.  I added bits of Stickles for some sparkle.  I added rhinestone centers to my snowflake brads for a little more bling.

I have also entered this card in the following challenges:

Christmas Cards All Year Round - Christmas Carol (Frosty)
Fab 'n' Funky - buttons and bows
Phindy’s Place – Christmas
Poodles Parlour -Anything Goes
