Walking in a Winter Wonderland Snowman

I just love snowmen, building them, making cards with them, just love em!
I made this card a few weeks ago and forgot to post it.  Got the inspiration from the design from a Paper Crafts mag and found this snowman in my stash of stamps that I thought would be perfect for it.
I embossed the snowman on cardstock and colored him in with pearlescent watercolor paints and then cut him out.  I used watermark ink to stamp various snowflakes on the Kraft card, used a white gel pen to draw around the border and then attached the snowman.  Can't wait for some serious snow this year so I can get outside and make some snowmen of my own.  So far all we've had here is a little dusting but we didn't let it go to waste, we went out and made some miniature snowmen!  My daughter loved throwing snowballs and helping with the snowmen!
My little guy wasn't so interested, he just wanted to nap.
