A Gem of a Challenge DT Card - Christmas

It's the last challenge of the year at A Gem of a Challenge and this time our theme is "Christmas".  I chose to use Cheers Chilly from the Pink Gem store, which I coloured with my Promarkers.  I love this fun image, I think it's perfect for male cards; this card is for my son's swimming teacher who is a young twenty-something lad.
 The papers are Crafter's Companion, from the Sara Davis Collection; I inked the edges with dark blue ink and added light blue card for the die cuts.
The sentiment panel was cut with a Sue Wilson die and stamped with a Papermania stamp, and the snowflakes were cut with Sweet Dixie dies and topped with crystal gems.  To finish, I added a few blobs of Nuvo Crystal Drops.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Crafty Catz - #350 - Non Traditional Christmas Colours 
Creative Corner - Christmas Time
QKR Stampede - #221 - Non Traditional Christmas Colours
CRAFT - #393 - Winter
Through the Purple Haze - #114 - Winter / Christmas Colours
If You Gave a Crafter a Cookie - #58 -  I was inspired by the colours and snowflake motif

Passion for Promarkers - #375 - Use Dies / Punches
Crafty Boots - Christmas
