Snowman Birthday Card

Winter birthdays are fun.  They give us something to celebrate after the memories of the holidays have waned, and the long winter days and nights drag on.  Our family, with the exception of hubby, whose birthday is in April, all has winter birthdays!   Daughter in December, son-in-law in January, one granddaughter in December, and the other granddaughter in November.  Then there's me, right at the beginning of March!

Today's card is for my bbf's son, whose birthday is next week....
Stamps:  Penny black snowman, various Penny Black clear stamp sets for presents, snowflakes, and verse.
Dies:  Our Daily Bread Designs double stitched rectangles
Medium:  Copic markers
Spectrum Noir clear sparkle brush

I stamped the snowman onto a card stock panel and colored him with Copics.  Since he had a sprig of mistletoe or holly in his hand, I cut out some presents and used a craft knife to make them look as though one is tucked under his arm and he is holding the other.  I added the snowman panel, and the frame to an A2 card.  Some snowflakes with sparkle from the shimmer brush, and a stamped and punched verse finish the card.  

I am adding my card to these challenges:
