Peaceful Snowman

Hello! Snow is on the way so I was inspired to build a Snowman with paper.  I stamped his head with an old Heartfelt Creations stamp, colored with Copics and fussy cut.  I cut rest of his body with Nesties circle and oval dies.  His arms were cut freehand from Brown CS scraps.  I assembled him on a White CS panel embossed with Darice Snowflakes EF and added some shine with Perfect Pearls and Sakura Stardust glitter pen to the snowflakes.  Added a strip of Pattern Paper scrap, stamped the GKD sentiment with Memento Red Ink, and attached to a Red Card Base.
Challenges:
Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge: #77 Sketch shown below
Retro Rubber Challenge: Challenge #rrcb53 Merry Christmas Color Challenge. Used red, green, and white with silver glitter which does not show in photo. Have had the Snowman stamp since 2014.
