Another Christmas Card!

I started this card at the weekend & managed to finish it yesterday evening but had to wait until today to take a photo (though today is nearly as dark as last night lol). I'm going to be quick as it's been a long day at work & I'm ready for bed. This is the 2nd easel card I've made (oh no wait a minute it's the 3rd) & they have all been Christmas cards. The papers are from my stash, the gorgeous image is by Lexi & is called Sammie Snowman; he's coloured in with Prismas with glitter glue added to his hat. I added lots of diecut snowflakes with gems & finished the card off with a little stamped robin, stamped greeting, brads & snowflake punched border.

I'm entering this card for 8 challenges:
Crafting Life's Pieces - Sketch
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Lots of Layering
Double Dutch - Baby it's Cold Outside
Fussy and Fancy - Winter
Saturday Spotlight - Snowflakes Gone Wild
Three Clovers - Baby it's Cold Outside
Suzi & Vikki's Christmas Club - Snow!
One Stop Craft - Fancy Edges or Corners
