Crafts and Me Challenge - 28 November 2012

This card I have kept to the non-traditional Christmas colour scheme of brown/kraft and blue.  I have used a Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps image called "Snow Cuddles" by Delicious Doodles.  I have coloured the image with my trusty Promarkers and added Sakura Stardust clear pen to areas to add some glitter and sparkle.  The sky I have used some glitter chalks and a torn piece of card for the clouds.
The backing papers I have used are Bearly Mine Designs Christmas Light.  The card has been finished off with some blue/brown spotty ribbon, Marianne Designs flower die-cut, doily, flowers, glittery snowflakes, gems and a Stamp Addicts sentiment stamp.
