You've Been Snowballed!

Good Morning All & Happy Hump Day to you!
Hope everyone is well!
It's time for a new freebie challenge at Dude Time Doodles!
Here's my card!

The image is called Duck Snowball Warrior!
He's available for free from the Dude Time Doodles Challenge Blog
All you need to do is stop by the blog, collect the freebie & create something for a Dude!
The prize is a GDT spot for the month of November with the
 Dude & Dudettes over at Dude Time Doodles!
Such a fun team of guy & gals to work with!
My card is a 5" x5" square.
The DP is from Papermania & the layout is from my imagination!

I coloured the image with Promarkers  & highlighted the snow, snowballs & the outline of  the 
snowman with a Sakura Clear Star pen. 
I love Sakura pens & they come into their own 
around this time of year when glitter is the order of the day!

I made a rosette & added the computer generated sentiment to the front!
The text I've used is Frosty & you can download it for free from here!
The sentiment was cut out using a scalloped oval nestie & the edges were inked with an inkpad!

I added some ribbon which was threaded through some snowflake brads.
As I was trying to decide what embellies to add to this card, I emptied some buttons out of my jar.
The little heart button landed where it is now so I decided that was where it should be! lol!
Thanks for stopping by to check out my card!
Hope to see you over at Dude Time Doodles!
I'm off to search out some challenges for my card!
