Craftyhazelnut's Christmas challenge extra for April

It's hard to believe that three months of the year have gone already. I know that some crafters think it's far too early to think about making Christmas cards, but there are others that feel that it does make perfect sense - so much so that there were 278 entries for my CHNC challenge extra for March. So, if you haven't yet joined in, now is perhaps the time to do so - CHNC challenge extra for April - just click on the link to participate and also see the wonderful creations by the rest of the team.

For my design card for CHNC challenge extra for April I used Chubby Snowman Scarf kindly supplied by Bugaboo Stamps, sponsor of the challenge. I coloured the image digitially in Paint and used card from my Christmas offcuts box, a stray sentiment circle (there is gold foiling on this, not black as it looks in the photo), some prima spacers and three little gems.

I followed the sketch given for Sketch and Stash 136:

This is also for:
