Bird loving snowman MMSC83

I'm planning on entering all three sketch challenges this month over at Midnight Madness but for now I just have this one finished.  I've been dragging out a bunch of my old PSX stamps lately.  I wish they hadn't gone out of business but I have enough of them to keep me busy for a very long time!  They have the best detail in their images.  I think this little nature loving snowman is so sweet. 

I've entered this card in the following challenges...

For my star I took two punches that I punched out of white paper to make it a little bit sturdier.  Next I brushed on a triple thick glaze and then I sprinkled chunky diamond dust glitter all over it.  The glaze really helps adhere the glitter so that you don't have a mess when people handle the card.  (pardon the glue under the metal dots...I'm always too impatient to wait for glue to dry when I take my photos.)

Card makings:
PSX: snowman
Star punch
Spellbinders: border die, circle dies, flower dies
metal hot fix dots
diamond dust glitter
copic markers
white colored pencil
