Cutie Pie DT Card - Festive Furry Friends

We have the first of our monthly challenges starting today at Cutie Pie, giving you plenty of time to play along, this month our theme is "Cute, Festive, Furry, Friends", and we're sponsored by Meljen's.
I used a super sweet Mulberry Wood stamp for my card, which I coloured with Promarkers and highlighted with Star Dust Stickles.
 The papers were a bargain; they are this year's Trimcraft, Back to Basics, Modern Christmas, 8x8 papers, that I picked up at the SECC for £1!  I picked up a pack of the Traditional Christmas papers for the same price too, you can't say fairer than a quid!  I used kraft for the matting, it seemed the obvious choice for this colour palette.
The flowers were made with my new Heartfelt Creations Arianna dies, from crinkle kraft paper.  I added a couple of punched snowflakes and some die cut foliage, made with a Spellbinders die, to my floral cluster.  To further embellish, I stapled some crochet lace to my card with green staples, and stamped a sentiment from a different Mulberry Wood stamp set, and die cut it into a tag shape with a Sizzix die, finishing it with a brown pearl.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Fashionable Stamping - #85 - Animals

Crafty Calendar - Christmas
Crafts 4 Eternity - #201 - Ribbon and/or Lace
Crafty Catz - #254 - Ribbon and/or Lace

    Another fab card. But this is just brilliant because you've used one of my favourite Beatles songs as your inspiration! It looks amazing & I love how you made the flowers look like pine cones. Love it all!! Thanks for joining us at Passion For Promarkers this week.
