Snow Friends

I'm having a festive kind of day...this is my second Christmas card post today! This one uses a Prairie Fairy digi stamp called 'Snow Friends' that I won a while ago...but this is it's first outing on a card...I love the little 'snow dog' with his twig tail and gloves for ears! lol
I followed the sketch from Sketch & Stash...and am also entering this card into some other challenges...but I'll link them all at the end of this post, as there's quite a few.
The papers are all BasicGrey (from the 'Figgy Pudding' collection)...and I distressed the edges with inks and my distressing tool, before adding some faux stitching. I used my 'Scalloped Diamond' EK Success border punch for the border down the central strip, the sentiment stamp is by Cuddly Buddly, and the snowflake was cut using my Cuttlebug 'Ice Crystal' die.

Bah! Humbug! - Punched Borders
BasicGrey - Punch It!
Dare U 2 Digi Stamp - Anything Goes
Susie & Vikki's Christmas Club - Christmas Stitching
