Penny Black and More - November Challenge

It's the first Sunday of the month, and that means time for a new challenge at Penny Black and More! Everyone seemed to really enjoy our Anything goes theme last month, and since it's been so popular, we decided to once again have the theme of 

Anything goes!

As always, we have several fabulous prizes up for grabs, this time we are sponsored by Penny Black, Crafts U Love and My Mums Craft Shop. 
Don't forget you can use and make of stamps, just no digistamps please. 

Since I will be needing Christmas cards in the near future, I decided to make a Christmas card for this challenge.  
 I used the stamp "Skiing Snowman" from Penny Black. This time I got out my distress inks and watercolored the image. 
It's a pretty CAS card, I just added a layered snowflake and button as embellishments.

Here is a complete list of products used:
Stamps: Skiing Snowman (Penny Black - avail at PB Stamps), Holiday mini ticket sentiments (Whimsy Stamps)
Papers: Winter Blues Designer Paper (Whimsy Stamps) SU and Neenah Card stock
Tools: Layered Snowflake dies, mini ticket die (both Whimsy Stamps)
Embellishments: button, twine
