What a fun sketch! As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to do a snowman theme with snowflakes in the circles. I got to use a Hampton Arts snowman set I got on sale at Michaels several years ago but had yet to use. I found all the coordinating papers (including the card base!) in my scrap bin. I started by stamping the snowman on a scrap of white cardstock, coloring, and cutting it out with the die that came with the stamps. I cut a strip of striped paper and attached to the card. Then I cut a rectangle of light blue and smeared glue on the bottom third and dredged through the fake snow until well covered. I figured out where the snowman would go and dotted glue around that area and added more fake snow to the glue, and set aside to dry. I didnât have a circle close enough in size to the sentiment circle to layer with it so I decided to reverse the sketch by making the middle one one layer and the others two, and also popping up the middle one. I stamped the sentiment in black and die cut it. Then I die cut two more light blue circles and two gray smaller circles. I used tape runner to attach the circle layers together and then attach them to the card, and used foam tape to attach the middle circle. I used glue to attach the snowman to the blue rectangle, and layered the piece onto some silver cardstock as the glue had warped the blue piece a bit and it needed support. Then I attached the rectangle piece to the card using foam tape.
For the record, the fake snow is a nice effect but a little messy to work with! TFL!

Well done! Love the added texture of the snow and the sparkly snowflakes. Great job on the sketch.
