Christmas Greetings Snowmen

Hello friends!'s Wednesday, so it's that time of the week again, mid-week inspiration for From The Heart Stamps.

Today is my wedding anniversary, 15 years, and we met 20 years ago on this day.
But I haven't an anniversary card to share today, I have given Dave this card.
So instead, i've made a Christmas card, because I seriously need to make some so that I don't have a mad rush in December lol :)

The image i've used today is from Faith's new Project 100 Snowmen line, this one is #14 to 17, Christmas Greetings Snowmen.
As with all of Faith's Project 100 Snowmen images, you can grab this yourself right now for just $1.00, a bargain i'm sure you'll agree :)

I really wanted to do both this weeks sketch challenge and twist together, which is to make a mail friendly card (to keep it flat). So I haven't used any dimentional tape at all.
I have added interest using Clearly Besotted Stamps's snowflake die cuts around the edge, which isn't in the sketch design, but as it's white on white, it looks ok to me. I did change the shape of the patterned paper piece a little though, as I wanted more colour towards the top right.
The paper is by Dovecraft, (Merry Magic).

Here's the sketch for reference...
