Sketch & Stash #44

Hi girls. Thanks for calling in on me. I really appreciate you taking the time. I only hope you think your visit worthwhile and that you find something to your liking.
I made this card for the current Sketch and Stash challenge following the wonderful sketch they provided. It gave me a chance to ink up my new Giordana stamp from Joanna Sheen. It's called "Snowman". I coloured it using my Copic Ciaos. The papers are Basic Grey's "Eskimo Kisses - finial" and My Mind's Eye, "The Merry Days of Christmas - pajama plaid". I haven't used very many embellishments but the snowflakes are cut from an old holographic card I had in my stash. The ribbon and glitter, which I have used in copious amounts (although it doesn't show too well in the photograph), are from my stash.
I would really appreciate it if you could find time to leave me a comment. I love reading what you have to say. Please don't be shy - tell me exactly what you think.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and stay safe and healthy.
Love and Hugs,
