Dashing Though the Snow

I'm such a sucker for these cute little James bears, and this is one of my newbies, inked up for the first time. I've kept the layout of the card quite simple, and used some gorgeous coffee coloured satin ribbon.  The pearls are also coffee coloured, but the pearl brad holding on the ribbon was originally a white pearl, so I coloured it with a E33 copic to match it to the other pearls.  The papers that I used are from my trust Silent Night pad, layered onto coffee coloured shimmer paper.

All that talk of coffee has got my taste buds going, so I'm off to make myself a frothy latte!  :0)

I might have to have a chocolate chip cookie to dunk in it too.  Well, it would be crime not to, right?

This project is to support the 'D for Dies' challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge which starts today.  I used a circle nestie die to cut the circular image panel and the trees were cut using Dohickey Slender Fir die.

Card Recipe, featuring items from The Stamp Basket:
I've been inspired by:
  • LOTV Challenge - Name That Tune (Dashing through the Snow / Jingle Bells)
Happy crafting

Love this one, those Slender Firs are one of my favourite die sets and I like how you used them here.
Love the muted colour scheme too with just the pop of colour on the pressies
