The Brave Snowman

Good evening All I hope you are All keeping well, I just got these new Memory box Christmas dies so I wanted to try them out, So I have made a fun Christmas card, This is the brave snowman because it takes a brave snowman to wear pink lol.
He is coloured with promarkers and I have added glamour dust to give him some sparkle. Backing paper is from papermaina, Memory box die cuts, ribbon and charm from stash.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges.
