Happy Holidays Snowman

Well it seems I have been on a Christmas card roll lately, well at least I am getting a bit of a head start.  Also at the Cricut Circle blog weekly challenge was to make a card using your Cricut, well this card was all made using my Cricut Imagine.
I made this card following a sketch this week on the Cricut message board.
I used the Imagine cartridge Snow Angel to print the background paper and the snowman.

 I layered the snowman and added a few extra embellishments to him.  I used brown pearls for his buttons and a brown rhinestone for his eye.  His carrot I colored using my Copic markers and then covered it with Glossy Accents.  For the "ice" I covered it with Crackle Accents to make it look like ice.  Using the Crackle Accents on the Imagine printed images gives it a bit of a different effect.  The Crackle Accents makes the colors bleed a little, in this case it was a good thing, but I will have to remember that because some times it may not be good.  LOL
I a very happy you took the time to stop by, leave me a comment so that I knew you were here.
