ABC Christmas Challenge - M is for...

I've got a 'Mid-way Reminder' card for our current ABC Christmas Challenge for you today, where the theme is:
'M is for Monochrome'

We are sponsored for this challenge by:

With a fantastic prize of 4 Wags 'n Whiskers digi stamps!
On the card I made last week, I used my favourite, and this time I've used one of my least favourite! The image is from the 'Jolly Friends' set by Penny Black - I coloured it using watercolour pencils, then added some 'Crystal' Stickles to the snow. The papers are from a Heidi Grace pad ( doesn't seem to have a name on it) - I distressed the edges, and added some faux stitching with my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. I used my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' folder for the embossing, sanding over the raised area to reveal the white core, then added a few pieces of Card Candi.

 I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
There's more inspiration from some of my lovely DT buddies over on the ABC Christmas Challenge.

Hi Helen-

Girl after my own heart, as I too cannot stand the colour pink. Blue is my fave as well. That being said your card is still super cute!
