Cutie Pie DT Card - Two's Company

It's challenge time again at Cutie Pie, this fortnight or theme is "Two's Company", meaning we'd like to see a card made with two character stamps, or using a stamp or topper with two characters on, oh, and don't forget to make it cute.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Crafty Sentiments.
We are also running a DT call with this challenge, if you want to be considered for our team, add the letters DT after your name when linking your entry.
 I've gone Christmassy for my DT card, using this cute Stampendous stamp, coloured with Promarkers, and highlighted with glitter for the snow on the branch.  I went round the edge of the topper with Evergreen Bough Distress ink, then used a pine needles stamp from a Creative Expressions set, inked up in the same ink, to add a festive frame.  I then outlined the topper with Cosmic Shimmer white PVA, and covered it with glitter for a sparkly finish.  to add to the bling, I added some clear gems to the stamped foliage area of the topper.
As the image is so large, it didn't leave me room for much in the way of layers and embellishments, I just used one sheet of Papermania Christmas in the Country paper, and decorated with navy ribbon, a bow, navy pearls, die cut pine cones, made with a Spellbinders die, finishing with a sentiment stamped with a Papermania stamp.
