My First Christmas Card !

Well I've finally done it, my very first Christmas card this year! I've been putting it off but today the weather is grey and miserble (but no rain) so I thought blue tones were in order! This is for two challenges: Tilda & Co Sunday Challenge this week is all about the colour BLUE, so this is my take on "Cold as Ice". The sketch is from Katrina (#9) at Papertake Weekly Challenge, which I really enjoyed doing! Thanks for taking a look...

I used:

- Tilda image (RAK from Tracy, thanks)
- Yuletide stamp from a See D's set
- white card, metallic blue card
- snowflake paper from docrafts
- cuttlebug embossing folder "swiss dots"
- angel hair (behind image) mounted onto silver card
- glitter glue on Tilda's fur
- fibre and snowflakes from stash
