Snow is Glistenin'

My first new ornament for 2013! 
This is my inspiration piece for Hobbycutz' Challenge this week...
"Home Décor - Anything but a Card"
I used a laser cut frame by Hobbycutz. There are 3 sizes in the set...
this is the smallest.
The adorable snowman is a digital stamp gifted to the Design Team by
I painted it with Decoart white acrylic paint, sanded the inner edges, sprayed it with Americana matte sealer,
and then sprinkled it with Frantage shaved ice.
The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils.
I used my old favorite CTMH cloud stencil and chalk to do the sky.
 Enamel Accents make the snow fall.
 A bit of Glossy Accents was used on the snowman.
A bit of ribbon turns it into an ornament.
 Not sure it will hang on my tree this year though.
My cat Nickelback (Nick for short) is a real Toy Boy! Might not even HAVE a tree!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
