Triple Challenge Snowy

It's contest time over on the Mojo Monday blog...and there's a fab sketch for us to use, so I couldn't resist having a go. I've combined it with the themes from a couple of other challenges: the 'Pink & White' colour combo of the Allsorts Challenge; and the 'Bling' challenge from the Secret Crafter.
I've used 'Snowy' (by Penny Black) as my main image, with Stickles glitter glue on the hat...or perhaps that should be 'Mrs Snowy' considering the colours I've used! lol
I've kept the background really simple, using the Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' and 'Swiss Dots' folders on white card, adding a few pink adhesive gems to the centres of some of the snowflakes. The sentiment (embossed in white) is by Three Bugs in a Rug, and the ribbon is from Poppicrafts.

I don't know what's gotten into me recently...I just don't seem to be able to stop myself from making Christmas cards! lol
