Snowman...peace * love * joy - CAS-ual Fridays CFC#25

I'm adding another Christmas card to my stash today.  With this card, I'm playing along in the following challenge:
CAS-ual Fridays CFC#25 is Just Add Color
My card ~

I've been wanting to use this cute Penny Black "Frosty" stamp that I bought a few weeks ago.  I decided that this was the time.  When you see my card, you'll see that I didn't add a lot of any stretch of the imagination.  But I DID add color.  I pulled out my (long neglected) Prismacolor pencils and the OMS, and gave Frosty some shading along one side to give him a little dimension.  I'm really pleased with the results...and I'm thinking that I need to do more coloring :)
I added a few score lines above and below my image, stamped my sentiment, then finished off with some diamond Stickles on the snowflakes.

Thanks so much for visiting.  I hope you'll leave a comment; I love reading them :)
