Return of the Skinny Armed Snowman

You may remember the young lass from the village who had charged the Guild Hall with a quest to slay a skinny armed snowman and transfer his likeness onto a card. It was some dark magic indeed to complete that task, but it went over so well, that she wanted another one. The Crafters Guild is not an organization to turn away crafty requests from young ladies in need - especially during the holidays.
I started by cutting out a shape from the Art Philosophy cartridge then stamping the snowman image by Whipper Snapper Designs on it. This time I coloured him using Prismacolors as I didn’t want this card to look too similar to the previous one I had made her. I inked the edges with Distress Inks and added some glitter to his hat. Let’s tilt the card to see the sparkliness better.
Ooooo....ahhhhh....This earned me +130 glitter exp points, which I flaunted in front of the Guardian of Glitter. The sentiment came from the s.w.a.l.k. “Let It Snow” set. It was already in the perfect arc to go over the shape I'd cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge. I added some silver snowflakes that are really “table confetti” that I’d saved from ages ago.
The inside sentiment was from a cheap Recollections set. I also used the Cuttlebug to emboss that circular snowflake.
I stamped some snowflakes on the envelope to complete this snowy card.

This holiday creation will be entered into the following challenges:

With another skinny armed snowman slain, it was another quest complete. With less than a week left until the big day, I’m curious as to how many more requests the Guild Hall will receive.
