Happy Holidays Snowman from Magnolia Stamps

I made this card for two challenges.  Over on the Just Magnolia blog, they have a wonderful sketch for you to follow using Magnolia stamps.  And over on the BasicGrey Challenges blog, it is Glitz and Bling using Basic Grey papers.

So I dug out Edwin's Snowman and got him inky.  I stamped him with Memento black into onto Curious Ice Gold paper.  It has even more sparkle than Cryogen does and I love it for snowmen.  Copics used:
Snowman - B0000
Scarf - R29
Ear Muffs - YG25
Arms - E33
Buttons - B21
Star - Y15

Now for the glitz and bling, I used Crystal Ice Stickles on his wings.   I glued Diamond Dust Twinklets onto the two white snowflakes.  And I added white Sparkly Fluff below the snowman. Final touch was lots of rhinestones.  The red snowflakes are from Stampin Up, the white ones are Martha Stewart punches.   I used a Sizzix Snowflake embossing folder on the blue panel.  All papers except the green card stock are from the Basic Grey Blitzen collection.   Finished size is 6" square.
