Snowy Hug

I made this Christmas card using snowy hug from Magnolia Stamps. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. This image is perfect for the challenges at Christmas Card Challenge (snowmen), Stamp With Fun (snow) and Creative Belli Blog (snow). The colors I used are blue and white for the challenges at Oh Alice (Icy Blue Color Scheme), Magnolia Stamp Lovers (blues), Papertake Weekly (Cold & Frosty Morning) and Make It Colorful (warm/cool colors). I added crystal stickles to all the white cardstock, the snowflakes, the image and on the ribbon for the challenge at Ooh La La (bling it on).

It's hard to see in this photo but I embossed the background using a cuttlebug embossing folder (dots). This fits into the challenges at Winter Wonderland (lets go dotty), Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge (tons of texture) and Catch The Bug (emboss it).

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
