PPRS December Sketch Challenge

Hi Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps fans, it's the 15th of the month and we have another great sketch challenge for you.  Here is my take on it, I used this adorable snowman image called "Snowman With Pipe" and is part of their red rubber collection.  The sentiment is from the "Victorian Ornaments" clear stamp set.
I stamped the snowman on white cardstock and colored with Prismacolor color pencils and OMS.  For the lacy circle I used white cardstock and punched the edge with a Blue Hills Studio punch, I then covered the cardstock with embossing ink and heat embossed with holographic embossing powder.
And here is our fantastic sketch by Nicole.
I can't wait to see your creations, anyone can participate in the challenge and you don't have to use Prickley Pear stamps, just make your card based on the sketch and link to the post at the PPRS Blog.
