Papertake Weekly Challenge...helped along by a Spoon Full of Sugar

Been feeling festive today...must be all that sunshine! So I've made a card for the Spoon Full of Sugar challenge, which has the theme 'Christmas is Coming' this week. I've combined it with Katharina's fab sketch for this weeks' Papertake Weekly Challenge. It's the first time I've entered a card for either of these challenges, but it appears that I'm quickly becoming addicted to blog challenges!
I've used the Penny Black stamp 'Snowy', coloured with pearly paints, and mounted it on layers of white card embossed with my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' embossing folder, matted on to pink and purple mirror card. All finished off with a bow of purple satin ribbon.
I really love the elegance and simplicity of this layout, and I'm sure I'll be using it again.
