White Christmas

Decided to make a Christmas card tonight as I have seen a few challenges with Christmas themes. I guess its never to early!

The image is a stamp from Lili of the Valley - Christmas Bird Table. I love how the Teddy is putting stockings out for the birds. I coloured the image with Whisper Stroke pens and distressed the edges of the spellbinders shape with VersaMagic Aspen mist chalk ink. I then added some clear glitter to give the effect of snow and fur.

Using a square card blank I covered it with a piece of paleblue snowflake paper from my stash. I then mounted the image on a darker blue snowflake paper. I punched some snow flakes out of the remaining backing papers, layered them up and glittered them with clear stickles. I added some silver Christmas ribbon. I then stamped "Just dreaming of a white christmas" using a crafty individuals stamp - I distressed the edges and mounted it on foam pads. To finish I added some small white pearls.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges -
