Cutie Pie DT Card - Create a Cute Scene

It's challenge time once again at Cutie Pie, this time our theme is "Create a Cute Theme", and we're sponsored by Stamp and Create.  I've created my scene by stamping with a rubber stamp, making a post-it note mask, then adding in clouds using a hand cut mask, a dusting brush and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, then over-stamping with a tree stamp using Pine Needles Distress Ink.
 The main image is a Lili of the Valley stamp, which I've coloured with Promarkers, adding Ultra Fine Flower Soft to the hat trim for a fluffy finish.  The tree stamp is from a Papermania Forever Friends set from a few years ago.  I finished my frosty scene with some Liquid Pearls for snow.
The papers are Papermania, Christmas in the Country, I just love the cosy homespun feel to this pack, I've added some faux stitching with a white pen.
To embellish, I've added some pompom trim, gingham ribbon, a bow, buttons, and a computer generated sentiment which I've die cut into a tag shape and decorated.
