My New LOTV Snow Family

I don't know about you but I'm really enjoying this last bit of sunny weather we're having in the UK. Okay it's a bit nippier especially in the evenings and the days are getting shorter but I think it seems to lift your spirits when the sun shines.
Anyways, on to my card. I was very lucky to win 4 LOTV christmas stamps in their monthly challenge and this was one of them. It's called 'Snow Family' and I think it's so sweet and just perfect for kids and adults. I coloured it with Promarkers and added stickles on the snow. The spotty paper is Raspberry Road christmas collection but I'm not sure about the others as they all got a bit jumbled when I was sorting out last week. The dies are Marianne Creatables LR0185 snowflake, LR0189 mistletoe and the tiny snowflakes punch I got years ago from the pound shop. I added a sentiment from the LOTV Christmas Grungy Message sheet - I love the variety of messages as there is something to suit most designs and it's a great way to use up card scraps. Finally the silver gems, charm and ribbon are all from my stash.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Lili of the Valley monthly challenge 'Ribbon and lace' (my 2nd entry)
Creative Craft challenge 2 'Use ribbon' (my 2nd entry)
Oldie But A Goodie challenge 'Dies and punches' (my 2nd entry - both dies and punch are over 6 months old)
