Snowmen and eskimos...

I made another card incorporating buttons for this fortnight's Jingle Belles challenge. I started with a PP from a paper pad (Cart-us Christmas Collection) that I bought in the January sale and I thought it was perfect for creating a scene. So I added a decoupaged eskimo (Marianne Design) and added a few trees and a snow border from the same decoupage sheet. The sentiment is from an A4 sheet of sentiments by Tineke Visser (also Marianne Design). I added a few buttons (from my big bag of buttons) in the big snowflakes on the PP for added interest and texture.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Jingle Belles - Button up
Winter Wonderland - A Christmas card
CHNC - #60 Create a scene
CCC - #11 Sketch (optional, as long as you create a Christmas card)
Crafter's Companion - #21 Anything goes
Allsorts - #142 Anything goes
The Crafty Pad - #157 The letter "B" (buttons, blue, brown, brrr)
One Stitch at a Time - #100 Anything goes
