A bit of a change for me

Good morning Bloggers, I hopw all is well in your world...hugs

As my title implies, my card for today is a departure from my usual stuff, but I do like it!
From one of our Friday night sessions, this card was friend Pauline's card for us to make.
It's been a long time since I made a DL card, and I must say that I enjoyed colouring this little fellow. We had th choice of Rudolph or this snowman, both by Woodware, so I chose this one, and I really enjoyed colouring him.
I usually use Copics, but being at Pauline's house I used her Promarkers. 
I got on okay with them but I do love my Copics better LOL.

All the materials were ready for us to play with so I can't give details of papers/card cuz I don't know them!
I did enjoy colouring him in, then I handcut him and mounted onto the card with sticky foam pads to give a bit of depth.
Faux stitching done with an ordinary white pen.
I chose to use the ribbon to make a bowtie for him.
I am seriously thinking of looking for this stamp and the Rudolph one and buying them :o)
