A Gem of a Challenge DT Card - Boys, Boys, Boys

It's challenge time again at A Gem of a Challenge, this fortnight our theme is "Boys, Boys, Boys".
I've gone with one of Janet's cute Andy digis, this is a new one, called Andy on Snowboard, perfect for Christmas cards or for winter birthdays.  I've coloured him with my Promarkers and added some Frantage embossing enamel along the bottom of the topper as a spray of snow.
 The snowy paper is from a Lili of the Valley pad, called Frosty Christmas, a favourite stack that is very thin now, I may have to invest in a new one.  The hills were simply made from torn white card, and I embellished with punched snowflakes and a banner stamped with a Papermania, Folk Floral stamp, with a Papermania, Lucy Cromwell sentiment stamped onto it.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Sweet Stampin' - Make a Scene
Simply Create Too - #94 - Early Holiday Wishes
Simply Papercraft - #13 - Anything Goes
The Stamping Boutique - Banners
Aud Sentiments - #140 - Anything Goes + a Sentiment
CRAFT - #328 - Christmas
Crafting By Designs - Get Ready For Christmas
Passion for Promarkers - #313 - Use a Sentiment

  2. I think this is gorgeous. I have the same stamp but would never have thought of it as him on a snowboard, so thank you very much for the inspiration. I have had a lovely time browsing your blog and now I'm following you. Looking forward to seeing what you create next. :-)
