I'm sooo excited!

My new Lili of the Valley stamps arrived yesterday! This little guy is sooo cute - how could I possibly resist??? Now I've always been of the opinion that christmas cards should be red and green but recently I've seen all you talented ladies out there making some gorgeous creations in pastels. So I thought I'd have a go...
I've coloured him with my promarkers and used paper from Dovecraft's Winter wonderland. The sentiment is a Daisy and Dandelion clear stamp (these are fab - I'll never need any new christmas sentiments again!). I've added a bit of glitter to his hat and the snowflakes (hope you can see it in piccie 2) and the ribbon is from my stash.
I'm entering it into the following challenges:
Pollycraft Monday Challenge - Christmas with no red or green
Crafty Cardmakers - Clean and Simple
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Animal Crackers
Charisma Cardz - Try something new
Love 'n' hugs,
Mel xx
