No friend like a Snow Friend

My daughter helped me arrange this card.  I had a couple of snowmen left over from another project and didn't know what to do with them.  My daughter said "Mom, they should be holding hands".  So that's where this one all started.  I layered them on some textured cardstock from Stampin' Up and then used a EK Success border punch on the bottom.  I chose some fun papers from K & Company and used some Tim Holtz old paper distress ink around the edges of it.  My daughter while I was doing this was pulling out ribbon from my ribbon boxes and decided that the yellow would be perfect.  I added a couple cute tickets from Scribbles by Sandy (without the edges) and inked them just a bit.  Then I layered the materials all together and stitched the image cardstock to the card and some fun green star buttons on with some green embroidery thread.  The final touch was adding the green star to the middle of the snowmen.
I really enjoy crafting with my kids, they have some marvelous ideas!
I am entering this card in The Stamping Boutique's challenge - Winter/Holiday
