Susie & Vikki's Christmas Club - Guest DT Card

I was so excited last weekend, when I saw that I'd been chosen as the next guest designer for Susie & Vikki's Christmas you all know, I love making Christmas cards!
The theme for their challenge this week is:

 'Baby's Christmas'

They are sponsored this week by Roberta from The Prairie Fairy...and the prize is 5 images of the winner's choice...and she has some really fabulous images to choose from! She also kindly gave the design team one of her images to play with...the adorable 'Bundeer'.

I decided to make a card for a baby boy's first Christmas. I watercoloured 'Bundeer', and matted him on shapes cut using my Nesties. I decided to keep the background really simple, using my 'Swiss Dots' and 'Snow Dots' Cuttlebug folders to emboss plain white card. The snowflake was cut using the Cuttlebug 'Ice Crystal' die, then I sprinkled it with lots of Glamour Dust. The sentiment is computer generated.
