CCAYR: winter wonderland continued

This is my first design team card for CCAYR November: winter wonderland mid-month inspiration - please click on the link to see the wonderful crafting of the rest of the team and to join in the challenge - please click here for the original challenge post where you can link your entries.

I used a piece of background paper from a magazine freebie with a piece of glittery ribbon down the side. The stamped image is Happy Snowman from A Little Bit Festive set by Sheena Douglass, coloured with spectrum noirs. I used one snowflake sticker to cut and put pieces on both sides of the card.
