Jolly and Happy

First......Happy Thanksgiving Wishes to all my friends in the U.S.   I hope you enjoy a lovely day with family and friends.

Here is today's card inspired by the challenge at Splitcoast this a.m.  The challenge was to create a simple holiday card that could be easily mass produced.  Well this one sure fits the bill.
I began by printed out the digi snowman from Bugaboo and simply coloured him with Copics and cut him out.  I scored three lines on the diagonal then stamped the sentiment from Paper Smooches.  I mounted the snowman with pop dots then added the enamel dots on either side of the sentiment.  The finishing touch was to add some Glossy Accents to the carrot nose.

Adding my card to these challenges:

(inspired by a song- Frosty the Snowman)

Oh my gosh! How fun. I love that you colored in parts of the greeting to match your snowman. Love the score lines too, just a little something to kick it up a notch.
