Christmas Cards ~ Catching Snowflakes {1st post}

I've had this card sketched out all week but haven't had time to work on it until today.
When I saw that Verve Stamps was sponsoring the Fantabulous Cricut challenge I just knew I could blend the two challenges.
The Verve challenge is to use some of your favorite Verve products.
For this card I used their sweet Mini Bookplate dies to showcase this cute sentiment that came as a thank you with my last order.
This sweet little guy looks so full of JOY to be out catching snowflakes. Just look at his cute little face.

*Card base cut at 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Snowman in frame cut at 3.5 in. from the Cricut Very Merry Tags cartridge.
*Sweet sentiment came with my last order from Verve Stamps. {freebie}
*Sentiment frame cut using the Mini Bookplate Die Set from Verve Stamps.
*Snowflake punch from Recollections.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad.
*Copic markers YR04 and RV21
*Ribbon from Celebrate 360.
May your day always be filled with love.
Crafty hugs,

Please join me and play along with these terrific challenges!
