Snowman in blue and brown

I've been too busy with work this week to do much crafting, so I've had to pass up on a number of challenges that this card would have been perfect for. Winter Wonderland was asking for cards for men/boys, but I have just discovered that the deadline was earlier today.

Materials used:
Stamp - Marianne Design
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Border - Silhouette design
Sentiment and brown/white snowflakes - Silhouette design
Other snowflakes - Marianne Design die
Paper-pieced scarf - DP from my stash (probably DCWV)
Brads - BasicGrey
Brown and blue colouring - my new Spectrum Noir pens
(didn't have any suitable brown cardstock, so I made my own)

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - Non-traditional colours
Christmas Cards All Year Long - 4/9: stamping, textured paper, metal embellishment, stripes
Ooh La La - No backing paper
CHNC - Christmas birthday or Anything goes
Clean and Simple Stamping - Fall To Layout 154 (sketch)
Aud Sentiments - Anything goes
Christmas Card Challenge - Glitter (optional)
