CD Sunday - Frosty Days

The weekends seem to come round too quickly at this time of the year when we are all so busy.  It certainly doesn't seem a week since I was last posting for our Challenge.  I loved all the Christmas Trees last week and this week's challenge is going to help again with those Christmas cards.
I have gone back to parchment for this one. I bought the large Woodware stamp of a jolly snowman when I was at the Sandown Show.  I stamped it out onto a piece of card and used it as a pattern to trace on parchment and then decided what pricking and embossing patterns I was going use.  The stamp itself seems  to be on a patchwork theme so I continued with that thought.

I added a little colour to the Robins, holly and buttons , and then created a border with corner snowflakes.  The snowflake backing card is from a Robert Addams CD - Christmas Backing Papers.

I hope you like my interpretation of our theme and your comments are always appreciated.  I will see you on your Blogs in my travels.
