Two Snow Dudes For Two Challenges

I created this card to fulfill two different challenges. The sketch is from Inkspirations weekly challenge. The second challenge is part of the Friday Mashup. I didn't mashup the two ideas... I just went with the snowflake idea. I decided to use my new stamp set. This is the first time I added any ink to it!
I started with a base of Whisper White. Then I used Baja Breeze and Marina Mist. I did emboss the Marina Mist with the new snowflake embossing folder. I used my markers to ink up my stamps so they could be multi-colored. I punched a Bashful Blue snowflake with my snowflake punch. I also punched a 1" circle of white with "merry wishes" in marina in the center.
I also used a small strip of the blue stripped ribbon (it's not SU ribbon, but it still is super cute!)
Here's a close up of the snowflake, which I popped up using stampin' dimensionals.
Thanks for looking!
