Pure Innocence - Mr Snowman

I'm just starting on my Christmas cards for this season. I haven't decided on a card that I can mass produce and safely mail so I am working on my 'special' cards.

Heather Ellis is the artist behind Pure Innocence images, and I adore her Etsy shop containing her digital images. I have her Mr Snowman 002, used on this card. So adorable!!! The sentiment is a Kaiser Craft set from last year called Be Merry Collection. I don't know if it is available anywhere, but it's a great set if you are able to find it!

As I have done recently, I used Stardust Stickles to add a magical sparkle to the image background. I love the softness of this card so much!

hat; T1/3/5/7, R22/24, G82/94
scarf; G20/82/94
heart; R00/20/22/24, T1/3
snow; BG000/01
background; B0000/000/01

I hope you have a blessed day!!!
