Winter Anyone?

The countdown is about to begin, just over 4 months until Christmas arrives, so it's time to start thinking about making some cute Christmas cards.

This is "Toby Tumble Happy Times" , a sweet digital image by Pachela Studios available at Cuddly Buddly.  This weeks challenge over at Cuddly Buddly's Let's Keep Creating Digi Challenges is to create a project with Swirls and Bling, as chosen by Marion.  We would really like to see you use a Cuddly Buddly digi image, and if you do you win the following:
The Prize: A £10 (or £5*) Cuddly Buddly Crafts Gift Certificate to be spent as the Winner so chooses in our online Shop.
* If the winning entrant has not used a Cuddly Buddly image they will receive a £5 Gift Certificate.

For this card I colored the image with Copics, trimmed the image with cardstock, and then mounted it onto another piece of cardstock that I had run through my Cuttlebug with the swirls embossing folder.  To highlight the swirls I gently rubbed the embossing with white ink.  The flourishes were cut with a Tim Holtz's die, and then the border, flourishes, and the snow falling in the image were all glittered with Diamond Dust.  Rhinestones, and the sentiment from my stash completed the card.
