Skiing Snowman

Morning Folks!
Can you believe that it's June already, how did that happen?? Not long until Christmas!! Perhaps you'd like to join our new challenge starting over at SPARKLES CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE today and get another card added to your box before December??

Our theme this time is:


 I based my card colour on these soft jade / turquoise coloured papers which are left overs from a combination of Christmas packs, including The Snowman and Forever Friends (I think!).  Somehow I always passed them by for the more traditional icy blues etc. as the jade colour didn't really say Christmas to me. However, now I have tried them,  I'm quite pleased with how this turned out - perhaps an old crafter can learn new colour combo's !!!

Here's a closer look at the brave downhill skier. He's coloured with promarkers with plenty of flocking added to his hat, liquid pearls for the falling snow and lots of stickles! 

The stamp is Penny Black Skiing Snowman. The sentiment stamp is from a bargain purchase in The Works, I think they were called contemporary Christmas sentiments by Docrafts. The trees and icicles are both cut with Die'sire dies.
