Christmas card

My card today is for Creative Moment's Challenge 74 - Anything goes/Summer sun. I have decided to go for summery colours but with a twist, a Christmas card.
The image I have used is Snowman Family from Crafty Sentiments. I have matt and layered a 8x8in white card. I have coloured the image using my Spectrum Noir pencils. I have then matt and layered the image and sentiment using Tonic dies. I have die cut patterned paper with a Xcut die.  I  have embellished the card with snowflakes that I have cut with a punch and I have put flat backed pearls into the centre of those. I have also added some twine and a silver snowflake charm from my stash.
