Beary Christmas

I've had this lovely Fizzy Moon stamp for about eighteen months now and it hadn't seen ink, I decided to rectify that and get colouring with my Promarkers.
The papers are Lili of the Valley, Krafty Christmas and Frosty Christmas, my favourite two paper stacks from last Christmas, I think they work really well together.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set as the image, I like the handwritten look to it.
The bunched border was done with a Martha Stewart punch and the snowflakes were cut with an Xcut die from glitter card.  To finish my card I added a ribbon, a bow, some clear gems and a little Star Dust Stickles to the snow in the image.
