Snowmen at 4 Crafty Chicks!

My friends for the last few days we have been having a Winter Storm...not quite a blizzard, but close enough. We have had lots of snow and there are huge drifts on the roads. We were teased you see with warm weather (-4) and blue skies on Monday and by Tuesday afternoon it started to snow and is now -20 with a very high wind chill.

Can you believe it is Thursday already??? Boy I sure can't but it is here and I am lucky enough to be the hostess this week at 4 Crafty Chicks. So with all of the snow falling who couldn't think of making snowmen. I couldn't believe it when I came home last night from my son's vocal lessons and there was a little boy playing out on his front lawn making a snowman...just happy as could be. He inspired my card for today's challenge. I had another idea but well this one just kind of took over. So I challenge you for CHALLENGE #16 TO USE SNOWMEN.

Here is my card:

I love this stamp aren't they just so cute? It worked so perfect with my new snowflake embossing folder (Northern Flurries???)from Stampin Up. Versa Fine Black ink, Night of navy paper, whisper white paper, and bashful blue paper, dazzling diamonds, night of navy satin ribbon and light blue pearls and SU & Copic markers.

I would like to enter this card into:
