Let It Snow! Week 12

I do hope that this week's Card Challenge at Scrapbook Sister's doesn't sound like an invitation for the real McCoy as this week's theme is "Let It Snow"

Now,this wasn't my original card,the first was a shaker card using one of Gayle's Digi's but unfortunately I completely bodged it at the last minute, 3d glaze on my last piece of acetate resulting in a Snow storm in the dining room as I lost the plot and and emptied snowy white glitter everywhere in a strop! Not a good move,I'm sure I'll be finding traces of snow for the rest of the year!
I resorted to using Karen's set of Forever Friends stamps again,not that I minded as I love using the Copics to colour that fur, think this is my best so far! I've used the "Santa's On His Way" paper pack yet again,teaming it up with some layers of holographic Mirri card.
I did a bit of paper piecing using some remnants from the drawer,added some red Stickles to the berries and used a Fiskars snowflake punch and a Cuttlebug Die to cut and emboss the large snowflake.

The greeting was stamped using a silver ink pad and a stamp from my stash.

Another Christmas card knocked of the list. Why not make one for your box and enter this week's challenge at the same time!
Thanks for stopping by,
