LOTV Snowbear

Hello everyone and a special welcome to my newest follower, thank you all for taking the time to visit me.

I'm still in the christmas mood and I've made a card using another of my LOTV die-cuts. This is from a sheet called 'Let it snow' and I'm not sure if it's available in any of the new art pads yet. The backing paper is from Bearly Mine Designs and I matted it all onto silver mirri-card. I made the snowflake using 2 Memory Box Crystal Snowflake dies which I cut smaller and stuck together with a pearl centre and the other dies are Memory Box Frostyville Border and Marianne Creatables LR0136 christmas tree. Finally I added a sentiment from my stash and some Stickles to the snowflake, tree and image.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
LOTV's Ideas to Inspire challenge 'Make It Festive'
The Hobby House challenge 'Christmas'
Live & Love Crafts challenge 'Warm or Cool Colours' (I went for cool)
Christmas at Sweet Stampin' challenge 'Snowmen'
Christmas Cards All Year Round challenge 'Fussy and Fancy'
Ready Teddy Go challenge 'Die cuts and Punches'
Creative Inspirations challenge 'Anything Goes + option of sketch'
Cute Card Thursday challenge 'Anything Goes'
Divas By Design challenge 'Favourite Colour Combination' (blue + white + silver)
Simon Says Wednesday challenge 'Anything Goes'

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend.
