Christmas Card #2

Good Afternoon everyone, hope you've had a lovely day.  I was determined to try and kick my mojo into gear today so went hunting around the challenge blogs for inspiration.   Last year I made a Christmas card every week but have slipped this year.
Here's the result.

I've used this cute Snowy stamp from the Penny Black Jolly Friends Set
Coloured with Promarkers
Snowman embossing folder
Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch
Glamour Dust
Gems and ribbon from stash.

Oops just realised I meant to add some of my fake snow for Snowy to stand on.  Please imagine its there and I'll go and add it now.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Joanna Sheen Challenge - Celebrations
I love Promarkers - Purple and Pink
Penny Black - Crafty Bargains (I got the Snowman Embossing Folder half price in January Sales)
Winter Wonderland - An Easel Card
