Chubby Snowman

Isn't this the cutest snowman?  Well I thought he was perfect for doing a little Christmas in July projects and he is courtesy of The Stamping Boutique.  You can find this Chubby Snowman here.  TSB is sponsoring the challenge this week at CD Sunday, so head over to enter your Christmas themed projects for a chance to win FREE images from the TSB store. I am entering this in the challenge over at The Latte Lounge, the theme is Christmas in July and each week they add a new twist.  Also check out the Get Hippity with Ippity group as their challenge this month is also Christmas in July. 

I used lots of layers on my card and started with the sketch over at Christmas Challenges with Sketches.  For the challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge this week, the letter is N for No Nonsense-this meant creating a card with no DP.  So I created my own paper using my snowflake embossing folder.  The snowflakes are cut using Christmas Cheer+Cricut Expression and then I added some sparkly fluff (sugar) and a little bling. My image is colored using Copics and then once again I added sparkly fluff to the snow and his hat.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
