Blue LOTV Christmas

I'm back with another Christmas card - this one'll probably be for my stash...until I realize I've forgotten a card and need one at the last minute!  My color scheme for this card was Silver, Blue, and White, following Simon Says Stamp challenge.  I love these colors and I was pretty happy with the way it turned out.  I wish I knew the name of the paper that I used, but I found it in my stash and there was no label.  It's really sparkly and a nice combination of dark blue, silver, and white.  I used one of my favorite images - James the Bear and colored him with my copics.  I then added Diamond Stickles everywhere again and inked the edges with Tim Holtz Stormy Sky Distress Ink.  I followed the monthly sketch from Crafter's Companion and love how it turned out.  I also used a free digital image from TLC that I thought went perfectly with this image.  I used a Copic Spica glitter pen for the snowflakes and diamond stickles to the snow in the sentiment.  I also distressed these edges as well.  I added some white glittery snowflakes and some bling.

Here's another angle:

And a close-up of James:

And, of course I had to decorate the inside of my card:  Here are some pics of that as well!  I hope you like it!
