PBSC December - Anything Goes (Optional 'Winter or Christmas')!

It's the first Saturday of the month, so that means it's time for a new Penny Black Saturday Challenge...where the theme is:

'Anything Goes'
or
'Winter or Christmas'

As usual, we are sponsored by the awesome 1-2-3 Stitch:
Prize - a $20 voucher!

I went with the optional 'Winter or Christmas' theme...I'm not sure if I need to make any more Christmas cards, but I just can't help myself! I couldn't remember the last time that I inked up 'Snowy', so I thought that it was time that he came out to play...I coloured him using watercolour pencils, then carefully cut him out. I paper pieced his hat and scarf using a snippet of patchwork effect paper from the 'Special Delivery' pad by Helz Cuppleditch. I used another paper from the same pad for the pink snowy background. I doodled a simple border using a black gel pen, and added a sentiment (from a set by C C Designs).


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
