blue Christmas

Snow cones and snowflakes for Stamp It Crazy. Well as long as the snow is on a card, I don't mind. Living in Scotland, we've sure had our share of snow this year. It's piled up here everywhere and with temps touching on -20C it's cold as well :(
Anyway, onto the card.....
An easel card with snowflakes on the paper, one of those freebies from last year and I can't remember the source. I think it was crafty companions. The snowman with his head knocked off is stampotique to which I added just a dusting of pale blue promarker and sparkle and a fibre scarf.
The snowflake was made by threading "a few" seed beads onto thin wire and stitched onto the card then a couple of peel off snowflakes.

The base has a topper from a RAK "Winter Wishes" mounted onto sticky pads and 6 little homemade snow cones using more of the BP and some crackle beads and a couple of little pompoms. The ribbon was rescued from a box of chocs. All mounted onto a hammered white card stock.

I am entering this into the challenge over at Stamp It Crazy - Snowflakes and snow cones challenge
Also the City Crafter Challenge - Let It Snow
The Crafty Purple Frog have an Easel card challenge so I'm entering this in that as well
