Christmas With the Snow Family

Back again with another card I managed to get finished this morning.

I bought this stamp called 'Snow Family' from Sugar Nellie and I've inked it up, coloured it and started making a card with it several times and never been happy with the result but this time I think I've finally cracked it.
I decided to try a tall CAS card, coloured the image with Promarkers and I used the Memory Box 'grand merry christmas' die to cut the 'christmas' letters from some scraps of red holographic card. Finally I cut a Marianne Creatable LR0189 mistletoe sprig from another card scrap with pearls for berries and I added a sprinkling of snow to the image with Stickles.

I must apologise for the quality of the photgraph but I really am struggling with the lighting this time of year and this really does sparkle when the light catches it.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Country View challenge 'Letters'
The Sugar Bowl challenge 'Sparkle and shine w/a Sugar Nellie image'
Sweet Stampin' challenge 'Cause for celebration' (my 2nd entry)
Pixies Snippets Playground challenge 'Week 100 snippets' (my 2nd entry)
Rudolph Day challenge 'Something festive'
Cards & Scrap challenge 'Winter'
