FSS - Hat Tipping Snowman

I think I'm finally back and able to continue creating. My wrist pain is minimal now and I'm starting off slowly. I sure missed not making cards but especially not being able to hand stitch them. So here is my fist card of the new year. I used the Fred She Said Hat Tipping pre-colored Snowman.

The papers are all from the Wonderland paper packet from Close to my Heart. I really think I need to order more of this paper before it is retired  at the end of the month. I really LOVE it for snow cards and layouts.
It's hard to see all of the glitter on this card but it's around the doily and one the snowflakes.

The Handstitching around the card was done using white Embroidery Floss.

The inspiration came from a sketch challenge at Deconstructed Sketch 35.
