FS567, CTS251 - It's Christmas Time

Congratulations to this week's Splitcoaststampers' Featured Stamper, Julene23! I chose this card as my inspiration:

I focused on Julene's:
-embossed snow
-figure with red hat
-touches of aqua
-rectangle focal area

I changed:
-embossing technique (dry embossing to heat embossing)
-gray cardbase
-added a sentiment
I'm also linking up to this week's CAS(E) This Sketch:

I started by stamping my snowflakes with Versamark and embossed with white ep. I masked a rectangle (with a rounded bottom edge to be a 'snowdrift') and lightly blended Peacock Feathers Distress ink. I stamped and coloured the snowman before using the matching die to cut him out. I finished with the sentiment (am I the only one who wants to continue it with "There's no need to be afraid").

I used:
