Lily of the Valley Christmas

All right, all right.  I'll admit.  I think I'm addicted to this little guy.  I can't help myself though - I think he's the perfect winter image and I find myself reaching for him over and over again!  I had a couple of challenges in mind when I created this card.  At Bizzy Bec's and Simon Says Stamp, both challenges were to create an all white card with the only color being on the image itself.  It's my first time attempting this and I must admit, it was a bit of a challenge for me.  But, I love the way it turned out!  My image is James the Bear from Lily of the Valley and I colored him with my Copics.  I cut him out using my deckled rectangles spellbinder and used diamond stickles for the snow and white trim on his hat.  I used white Prism paper as a a base for the card, then added white Bazzil dots to add some texture.  I followed Friday Sketchers challenge for the sketch of this card.  I ran two rectangles through my Snowflakes embossing folder and Cuttlebug.  I then used the Snowflake Trim punch by Martha Stewart and punched it in glitter paper.  I added a sentiment "Let It Snow" by Inkadinkado.  The snowflakes are from Jolee's and I glimmer misted them with Pearl to give them some sparkle.  I really hope you like this card!

Here's another picture where you can really see the embossed snowflakes.

And finally, a close-up of the image.   Hope you like it!
