Christmas Greetings! Sweet snowman and fun colors!

I was pushing around some paper piles and found a stack of Recollections Jolly Holiday paper I bought on Christmas clearance last year. Since I still have not ventured into my closet to pull out my Christmas supplies I figured I would use what I already had out!

Snowman from Winter Woodland Cricut Cartridge
Papers from Recollections Jolly Holiday Stack
Silver Glitter
Stickles, liquid pearls, buttons
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Give a hoot
Trendy twine
Purple Twilight Skittles from DoubleClick
Snowflakes from a punch
Christmas Greeting Stamp from Docerela

I also stepped outside of my comfort zone, I have tons of Tim Holtz Distressed ink colors but only use the walnut stain, so for this project I used the  dusty concord Tim Holtz Distressed ink color!
