Ever so blue - but a happy return!

Hello lovelies
Well now isn't this a surprise?
 Susie decided to change the challenge around a bit and call it Tilda and Friends and asked me if I wanted to come back to the DT.
Well I thought about it for a while (I think it was a nano-second) and I said yes.
Well it would be rude to say no now wouldn't it? hehehehe
So, now you can use any image you like to enter the challenges.  The only stipulation is that the image you use must be a rubber stamped image - NO DIGIS.
So, without further ado, let's get on shall we?
For this challenge we are sponsored by none other than:
Simon Says Stamp
and the fantastic prize on offer is:
(excluding postage)
So here is the card I made:
I decided that as they haven't been used in simply ages I would root out my Anya stamps.
I have used one of the Miss Anya Scarves set.
The image is coloured with my Spectrum Noir pencils.
The background is done with shaving foam and distress inks.
A cool trick I learnt from Barbara Gray at Clarity Stamp and I will definitely be doing more of these.
The Christmas Tree is a Clarity Stamp which you can find here as is the sentiment which is here.
The fabulous Happy Christmas ribbon is of course Exclusively from Crafty Ribbons and you can find that here.
The sweet little snowflakes are from my local craft shop.
I also added some holographic embossed snowflakes in the background but I'm not sure they show up very much. hey ho.
So there you go, my first card for the Tilda and Friends challenge.
Can't wait to see your fabulous entries.
