Is Blue Traditional?

Hi - time for another challenge over at http://christmasstampin.blogspot.co.uk/. This week the challenge is to make your project using Traditional Christmas Colours. Now as you will see unfortunately I didn't read the remit of the Dt instructions thoroughly and went ahead making my card in various shades of blue!  Surely blue could be traditional lol - after all snowy scenes have been shades of blue for ages!
This week they are sponsored by Limited Run Digis and my digi used is called "Catching a Snowflake".
She is coloured using my copics and the fur sparkled up using a mixture of blue and silver glitter. I have also added glitter to the little snowflakes.

I had seen a sketch over at "My Mums Craft Shop" which I liked and so based the design of my card on it. The backing paper was a free download from "Bearly Mine" - a gorgeous swirly snowflake design. The sentiments are two of my favourite wooden stamps - "A Snowflake is Winters Butterfly" is from Hero Arts but really not sure where I got the other one from. There is a really lovely snowflake corner die cut from Memory Box in the right bottom corner. I finished off the card with some contrasting gems and pearls.
I would like to enter this in the following challenges -
