Magnolia Frosty the Snowman with Snowflake!

Good Morning!
Wow it feels like it has been ages since I have made a card using a Magnolia Stamp! I know it has only been a few days but I was starting to get withdrawl symptoms so I just HAD to make one yesterday lol I'd had my eye on this Stamp for ages but everytime I went to buy it it was either sold out or I couldn't afford to lol but finally I managed to get him last week and here is my first card using him!

I have used the 'Masking' Technique on this card, I have always loved this technique but tend to forget to use it as much as I'd like to. Here's some little pics I did for you of a before and after 'Frosty' was masked. The Snowflake Stamps used came with last years Fall Kit.
If you are interested I have a Tutorial on Masking HERE.



To make the Snowflakes a little different I added White Glitter to the one 'Frosty' is holding, Stickles to the larger ones in the background and just kept the smaller ones simple with 3D Gloss. I added Adhesive Pearls to the Centre of each.

This Card fits the Challenges at:
