Letters To Santa

I just love this Christmas image from Elisabeth Bell's digi stamp collection, called Letters To Santa.  I colored this image using crayola and prisma colored pencils.  I used all white card stock to create my card. The embossing is done using a cuttlebug embossing folder (dots).  I added a piece of pink pearl ribbon across the center. I made a bow out of the same ribbon and added it to the side of the image.  I went lightly around the embossed piece and the image with crystal stickles. I also added some crystal stickles  to the snow on the image.  I finished it off by adding 3 pearls to the upper corner.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
