BRRRR!

Winter is definitely in the air, more so next week aparently. I am trying to make a few Christmas cards, the special ones at least. The image on this one is really chilly, to match the temperature.
I coloured this a while ago so only had to add bit of bling ie. stickles to her fur trim.
The base card is HUGE. It's 7.5" square and is from a pack that Sonia kindly gave me last Tuesday. Thanks again Sonia. I covered the front with a piece of Tim's Vintage Shabby paper, a piece of gorgeous lilac paper which is silver embossed. I've not been able to cut into this paper because it's so gorgeous, but hey! the time has come.
I matted the image onto another piece of Tim's paper, roughed the edges and stuck that to the card. All the paper was distressed around the edges with dusty concord and the image was edged with silver stickles, bits of silver peel off to make corners and some square sticky gems. I made the snowflake ribbon with a Martha Stewart punch and the white branch is from Tim's regal crest die. Everything else is from my stash.
I enjoyed this one, but reckon it may have to have a box if it gets posted.
I've started another card but want  to enter it into a challenge so I must get on with it as I have to make 2 birthday cards and one of those is needed for next Tuesday!!
