Cutie Pie DT Card - Simply Christmas

It's time for a new challenge at Cutie Pie, this month our theme is "Simply Christmas", meaning we want to see your cute CAS Christmas creations.  We're sponsored this time by Di's Digis and Crafty Ribbons.
 Once again, I've used new stash from the SECC, a super cute Lili of the Valley stamp, a scrap of Lili of the Valley, 'Twas the Night paper, and a Sue Wilson snowflake border die to make the pretty white work strip.  In addition to my new goodies, I used an old Papermania sentiment stamp, and my Spectrum Noir pencils for colouring, which I did directly onto the card blank as it had a nice texture, similar to watercolour paper.  I don't like too smooth a card for pencil colouring, I prefer something with a bit of a key, these 5x7 landscape cards (I used mine as a tent fold) from Anna Marie Designs are perfect for coloured pencils.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Crafting From the Heart - #85 - Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion - #287 - Anything Goes
Incy Wincy - Winter Activities
Christmas Card Challenges - #49 - Anything Goes
