CTD#219/RS#38 - Swanky Snowdudes

 Howdy Ho friends!  I hope you're all doing well.  It's time for the Color Throwdown Challenge and our hostess for this week is the talented Tammy
I'm in love with the colors Tammy has chosen for us this week, these colors are such fun colors to work with.  I really hope you'll take the time to play along with us this week.
For my card I used the Paper Smooches stamp set Swanky Snowdudes and the Retro Sketches Challenge #38 for my layout to create a Christmas card.  I ended up flipping the layout from the sketch because my snowman was pointing in the other direction but overall I stayed true to the sketch.
Supplies: Swanky Snowdudes -Paper Smooches, My Mind's Eye dp, Copic markers, Glitter, Banner die (PTI), Corner rounder, Bakers twine, MS snowflake punch, Button, Foam tape.
