Winter Blues Sweet Stamps Challenge

Our challenge this week at Sweet Stamps is Winter Blues.
Remember Sweet Stamps is having a fabulous sales on Christmas items: 25% off!
For today's card I used the adorable Button Snowman (206G).
I stamped him unto light blue cardstock with Memento Black ink.
I colored in his scarf and buttons with a white gel pen.
I colored the holly and berry with red and green spicas.
I trimmed my focal image and popped him up with some foam tape unto white cardstock die cut with Nellie's multi frame ovals (MFD013).
I layered that onto a blue oval which I dry embossed with the polka dot embossing folder.
The snowflake background was created with the Tiny Snowflake Background Stamp (8022I).
I added a blue and white polka dot ribbon and bow with a white brad.
The bottom was finished off with a scalloped border punch.
Thanks for stopping by and check out our blog and see what the other awesome designers have created.
Also, stop by the Sweet Stamps store and check out the sale.
