Hello!  It’s theme challenge week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.  This time it should be a fun and easy one:  snowmen.  Feature a snowman (or two or more) on your Christmas or wintry card, and share it with us at the 52CCT site!

I’ve used OWH Stars & Stamps sketch #255 for the layout of my card.  It called for lots of layers, which isn’t my usual style, so it was fun to do something different.  After I stamped and colored the snowman, I added some shimmer paint for the snow on the ground.  It was really hard to get the shimmer to show in the photo.  The white layer of the snowflake embellishment was punched from cardstock that had also been painted with the shimmer paint.
