A Christmas card

Good afternoon,  here's a Christmas card I made using some Card-io stamps I bought back in November.
A simple, stamped design using stamps from more than one set and some distress inks. I coloured the snowman's scarf with a watercolour marker and added some little pearls to the wreath.  I'm quite pleased with this one as the wreath looks reasonably circular...unlike umpteen previous looked so easy when the lady at the craft stall did it! 
Thanks for visiting and have a pleasant evening

That's a super scene you've created Chris, wonderful card! I've been known to buy something at a craft fair and then get it home and then give up as I couldn't get it to stamp / work / look like to one being demo'd!! You've done better - you persevered and got a lovely card!
