Cutie Pie DT Card - Work, Rest or Play

It's time for a new challenge at Cutie Pie, this month our theme is "Work, Rest or Play", and we're sponsored by Pink Gem, who very kindly gave the DT an image each of our choice to work with.  I chose to use the very sweet, and playful Angelica with Snowman, colouring the image with Promarkers and highlighting it with Star Dust Stickles.  I used a Spellbinders Curved Rectangle to cut the image out.
 I gave my patterned papers the day off and used plain blue, and white pearl flecked cardstock along with my Memory Box Frostyville Border die to create a background.  A liberal application of more Star Dust Stickles and some blue gems to the border pumps up the sparkle factor, well it is a Christmas card!
To further embellish, I added some layered ribbon with a matching button topped bow, a pair of mittens made with a Memory Box die and a sentiment stamped with a Papermania stamp.
