Easel Christmas Card

Hi everyone,

I'm back again this morning with another post...this time for The Paper Shelter Challenge #134

The theme we have for you is "Easel Cards" and I have coloured with Copics a fun new digi called
 "Yep, I Have My Methods" and he can be found here

I think his little friend is wondering what happened to Rudolph..hehe! 

I've used a few dies on this card...some new and others I've had for awhile.

MB - Grand Happy Holidays die (might be using this one a lot this year)
MB - Frostyville Border die
MB - Snowflake Corner
TH On the Edge Snow Flurries
DP - Recollections Blue Christmas
Recollections Frosty Cabin
SU - Real Red
Ribbon - Michaels
Star Dust Stickles

As always we have a wonderful prize for the winner this week.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:
Artistic Impression Challenge #64 - Anything Goes
Addicted to Stamps Challenge #67 - Christmas is Coming
Polkadoodles and Studio 12 week 42 - Christmas is Coming
