Delightful Challenges Let it snow challenge and the poorly snowman!!

Hello again

Well here I am again and to be honest I'm not quite sure how I got here this week.  I've been soooo busy that I felt sure that by today I would have given up!!

None the less I made it hooray!!

And the challenge
at Delightful Challenges this week  is

Let it snow
(use snowflakes)

Our fab sponsor this week is

Who are offering a fabulous prize of a Scrappyland $20 store gift card

Here's my card

This little snowman image is just so cute he's called Candy Cane Jingles and is available here

Now I'm sure you'll agree that snowmen make quite easy cards - after all he's white! - so hardly any colouring for a start.  I thought I would ring the changes by giving him a bit of shine with lovely shiny red boots, candy cane, buckle  and hollyberries ....and nose.  I used my glossy accents to do all of this and left it to dry.  I made up the rest of the card and put it all together when .....  shock horror!!!! - my snowman was poorly, now how do you know you might ask - simples - he has a runny nose!!  

Well in another life I might have put this right but this week it was runny nose snowman or no card at all so for my card he might have to be renamed -Runny Nose Jingles with candy cane! -in my defence he has got lovely shiny boots ha ha. 

This is what I did.....

Image - Candicane jingles by Digital Delights
Coloured with copics
Buckle - silver marker pen fro aldi!
Sentiment - from Naughty or Nice set from Digital Delights
Glossed with glossy accents
Papers - Merry from My minds Eye

Pearls - from my crafty heart
