Whiff Of Joy Challenge 8 - Boys Christmas

The challenge this week at Whiff of Joy is to create a boys Christmas card but don't use the colour BLUE. I only have one boy Whiff of Joy stamp & that's Charlie with his snowman but isn't he the cutest.
I've coloured him using Whispers & the DP is Papermania Traditional Christmas. I've mounted a Brenda Pinnick frame over the top of Charlie & embellished that with some opaque snowflakes & then Quickutz snowflakes cut from glitter card on top with red swarski crystals in the middle.

The white Christmas trees are from Madabout Cards & the words are taken from the cuttlebug embossing folder. I've finished off with a Christmas tree charm tied with embroidery cotton.

I realised afterwards that the frame would have gone through my cuttlebug as the more I look at it the plainer it looks but I wasn't going to start dismantling the card lol!! . . . . . maybe next time.
I've given Charlie some snowballs to throw when he's finished building his snowman.
