Christmas card for a child

This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 4: buttons. The challenge is being sponsored by Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and more and I have used one of their images called 'Carl the snowman'. I coloured this with promarkers and flexmarkers and cut out with a scalloped circle nestie die.  The background card and the striped and spotty strip down are from an old Kanban kit, the sentiment circle is Craftwork cards and the piece of checked paper was from a magazine freebie. I've added three odd buttons to the snowman.

I based the card on the Sweet Sunday sketch 197:

And  this is the first card that I'm showing for my own CHNC challenge 152: for a child - I do hope you will be able to join me in that challenge.

Snowman inspired by the photo for An inky situation 18:
