Edwin's Snowman Card for lots of challenges...

I'm finally back from my business trip. I spent the last two weeks getting ready for the trip, and now I can relax. My boss even gave me the rest of the week off :-)

So I decided to make a card, since it's been a while!

This card is for these challenges:

1. Tuesday Morning Sketches - sketch
2. Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - snowman
3. Magnolia Down Under - Christmas in July
4. Simon Says Stamp - distressing
5. Dutch Dare - punches (inside)
6. Magnolia-licious Highlights - Christmas in July
7. Cuttlebug Spot - Christmas in July
8. Three Clovers - bling
9. One Stop - Christmas in July
10. Secret Crafter - 3 buttons, 2 designer papers, 1 ribbon
11. Colour Create - blue and white
12. Stamptacular Sunday - inside and outside
13. In the Cottage Studio - Christmas in July
14. High Hopes - sparkle and shine
15. Pile it on - more than one challenge, watercoloring
