Cool Snowman - Gypsy Smiley Cards

I just keep finding these new (to me) challenges!  This card is for The Paper Players, which was to make a project or card using a snowman, and it is also for Papertrey Pals which was to use dry embossing.  I kept it simple but am pleased with the way it turned out.  I hope you like it too.

Here's what I came up with:

 Again, I made two!  Two more down!!!
And notice I'm taking everyone's advice and doing cards that can be late so we can include the baby in our family Christmas photo.
Thank you all!

 Snowman and layers were cut at 3.75" high.
There is a layer that looks like cute little buttons, but I decided to use real buttons instead.
Looking at it now I wish I had stamped a little checked background on the scraft and/or ran it through the Cuttlebug for some texture.  Oh well, next time!
I still think he looks Super Cool though and
"Warm Winter Wishes" is the perfect sentiment from him!
AND I must give a shot out to Papertrey Ink!  Their sentiments are wonderful and so many of them fit perfectly in punches!
FYI, I don't work for nor do I design for them! 
I'm just a fabulous and happy customer!
