Frosty the Snowman

Morning all, its cold and frosty again down here in Gosport today bit like my card !!
I have made this easel card for a friend of mine who I think will love it as she likes this sort of style . I love this snowman stamp he's kinda spooky don't you think !!
Let me tell you what I used to make it; I coloured the snowman stamped image with copic markers all the DP is from the BG figgy collection and the card stock is all textured Bazzill card.
I stitched all the card and paper on my sewing machine using several different stitches.
The snowflake in the top corner is cut and embossed with an Ellison cut n embosslit and then I sanded it with sand paper on the white core blue DCWV textured card.
The snowflake in the middle of the card I cut using the Sizzix snowflake die in chipboard and then I used Tim Holtz broken china distress ink on it and then covered it in 3-D crystal lacquer and sprinkled it in Crystal art glitter.
The snowflake on the base is from DCWV, the Gems are from Kaiser and the snowflake charm and white fibre is from my stash.
There are a lot of snow/ Snowflake challenges out there at the moment and I managed to get a couple of technique challenges onto this card as well............
