Frosty the snowman

Hi everyone, nice to see a bit of sunshine again. Today I have a Christmas card to share with you.

 The image is one of the digis that was in the middle of a magazine and also available for download at (Simply cards and papercraft). It was in the Winter Night set. I isolated the image I wanted using paintshop. I've coloured using Promarkers and added Stickles as snow and his nose. Everything is matted with silver mirri board, some having been cut with a deckle edge. I've added various peeloffs, gems and ribbons from my stash. The square panel and snowman are raised with sticky pads. Here are some more piccies.

I would be very grateful if anyone could let me into the secret of how to get images to go where you want them as I find that what I see as I set this up is not how it appears on the blog. I spend ages previewing and jiggling images about. I'd really like to be able to be precise in my positioning so any advice would be welcomed.  Anyhow, back to the card...the backing papers are from the Papermania Vintage Christmas Colossal Paper Pack (8x8). 

I would like to enter this in the following:-

Thanks for visiting, I hope you've enjoyed your visit and will come back soon. 

Happy crafting
