Snow Buddies

I had another fantastic day stamping with my friend Glenda and this is the card I made.I had originally coloured the snowmen's hats black but decided to change them to green. 
They were coloured with alcohol markers so I used the colourless blender to erase as much of the black as possible. Then I coloured over them with green, the result is the hats look like felt IRL. The photo doesn't do them justice. 
The inside says "Merry Christmas from your snowbuddies!"
