House Mouse Challenge 17 - Choir Practice

Finally. I've finished all my Dad's cards and he's posted them all off, so now I'm free to do what ever I choose - WOO HOO. So I decided to enter in to the House Mouse Challenge which is called "Let it snow". To be honest I'm a bit fed up with snowflakes having die cut so many for my Dad's cards, so I decided to use Woodwares "Fluffy Stuff" for the snow on this card ...

From the base up -
1. Stardream Mars red pearlescent card
2. Base DP is from the new K & Co "Christmas Cheer" 12x12 pad
3. Top DP is also from the K & Co pad but mounted on to gold silk Mirri card
4. The stamp is called "Choir Practice" and is coloured in with Derwents Coloursoft pencils and sansodor. The berries where gone over with Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze real red pen. Then mounted on to Gold silk Mirri card. And of course Fluffy Stuff for the snow.
5. Old gold eyelets from Making Memories and gold organza ribbon threaded through and bowed.
Not overly happy with the colouring on this one as I'm a bit out of practice, but I'll get better once I get back into the swing of stamping again.
Thanks for looking

PS. Used the sketch from the HM challenge on Paper Craft Planet from a couple of weeks ago.

Ooooo Ann, I love this card! The ribbon laced around the edge is perfect and the snow looks very real! I just rec'd this stamp in an order I placed using a gift certificate from a VERY gracious friend! Great take on the challenge and glad you could join in this week! Big hug, Mary :)
