Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 7: gatefold

This is my design card for today's Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 7: gatefold card. This is sponsored by Robyn's Fetish stamps and more and also Lacy Sunshine.

For my card I've used the 'home for the holidays' snowman image kindly supplied by Robyn's Fetish. I coloured with spectrum noir pens. and mounted on  to a piece of Echo park 'winter wishes' paper in the centre of the card. I embossed some card for the fronts with a dotty folder run through my eBosser and brushed it with broken china distressed ink and added some punched snowflakes and the 'from our house to yours' sentiment.

This is also for Daring cardmakers: Christmas movie quote: The Snowman: 'I remember that winter because it had brought the heaviest snows I had ever seen. Snow had fallen steadily all night long and in the morning I woke in a room filled with light and silence, the world seemed to be held in a dream-like stillness. It was a magical day... [brief pause] ...and it was on that day I made the snowman.'
