Inky Impressions Animal Challenge - Sophia Snowball Easel Card

Hi all, hope you all have had a fantastic Christmas.  As from this week our Inky Impressions Challenges are going to be weekly and Challenge 3 is 'Animals' and today I have Nicole's new release 'Sophia's Sweet Snowman' isn't she just the cutest!!  I have made a circle easel (snowball) have distressed the edges and added Champagne Glitz Stickles to match the bow and used metallic embroidery thread to hang the cute snowman charm.  Snowflake punch covered with SU Chunky Glitter and a clear rhinestone in the middle.

Have used Glimmermist Marshmallow to give extra sparkle.
Kindy glitz for snow and special effects on the eyes and berries in the hair bow, Inky Dew Drops and clear rhinestones for added sparkle, with a gorgeous snowball trim around the edge of the image.
 These ribbons are just gorgeous, I have stuck the gold ribbon on top of the red and then trimmed the edges

Patterned Papers Kaisercraft, SU vanilla cardstock
Inky Impressions - Gold and Red Ribbon, snowman charm and Inky drops
Crafty Ribbons - Snowball trim ribbon and Lilac Ribbon
Everything else from my stash.
