Trimming the Tree

Happy Halloween everyone! And for those of you who will be celebrating with your children, I hope you have a lovely time.
I started to make my Christmas cards today, and although colouring isn't my forte, (I prefer painting), I quite enjoyed myself colouring in some Christmas images with Pro Markers.
For this card...first of all I covered the front with glittered vellum from Papermania. I then tore a piece of white paper to make some definition and form a bank of snow on the ground. I edged this with Glamour Dust.
 The stamped image is from LOTV, coloured with the Pro Markers and Glamour Dust to highlight the snow and fur trim. I then cut the image out and embedded it into the snow.
My sentiment is also from LOTV, I mounted it onto a doily from Spellbinders - Floral Motifs, then added some aurora borealis gems, and a bow made with the gorgeous 15mm red satin ribbon from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.
I'm entering this card into the challenge at Make It Monday - Anything goes
Thanks for stopping by xx

Perfect design for this wonderful winter image. Love that you left the picture to decorate the card and then added a pop more of color with the bow and sentiment. Truly wonderful for whoever receives this Christmas card. :)
