Frosty the Snowman

Another Christmas card and how I love making them. I made this one for the Winter Wonderland challenge. I was very happy to have won last weeks challenge here and so here is this weeks entry.
Don't know if anyone can help me out but don't know where this stamp is from as I have lost the original packaging. Love the image and coloured it with my whisper Stroke pens - these will be redundant soon as went on a copics class at Grimsby Crafts and am now the proud owner of 10 copic ciaos! Once I have a few more colours they will come into regular use. Kate from  http://downrightcrafty.blogspot.co.uk/ took the class and was amazing. Anyway back to my card, I backed the image onto gold mirror card and chose 2 contrasting backing papers. I embossed a tim holtz flourish with gold embossing powder added some gorgeous brown ribbon. I punched some snowflakes and embossed them using ultra thick embossing powder and added some gems to bling them up. The sentiment is an old rub on that i discovered in my stash and contrasted very well with the colour theme I was using. I would like to enter this card in the following challenges -
