I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas...

I'm afraid it's another Christmas card from me today. I've combined the sketch from the Our Creative Corner Challenge, with the 'White Christmas' theme of the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long Challenge and the 'Christmas in July' theme of the Stamp Something Challenge.
I've used 'Snowy' (by Penny Black), and coloured him with watercolour pencils keeping him as white as possible, using only a hint of blue on his hat and scarf, and I just had to give him a bright red nose! I used the Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' and 'Snow Dots' folders on plain white card, matting the layers with a pearlised silver card, and a piece of sparkly blue organza ribbon to echo the colour of Snowy's hat.
