Christmas Critters

Meet this adorable little pair just sharing some Christmas cheer.
Playing with a new image from the Penny Black set called Snow Much Fun.

I began by stamping the image using my Misti, then coloured it using Copic markers.  I added some Wink of Stella over the fox to give him a shiny coat.  Too bad you can't really see that in the photo.
 Next, using a circle die, I partially cut a circle from a piece of cardstock.  I glued that onto my card front and then sponged the bottom area with some Salty Ocean Distress ink to help ground the image. 

I positioned my image inside the circle area and stamped again using Memento black ink.  I did that so I could pop-dot the coloured image over the top and didn't have to fussy cut out the holly and berries.

I stamped the sentiment from the PB set called Festive Snippets.
I bordered the edges of my card front with some red polka dot washi tape and pop dot mounted the whole piece over that.

 Adding my card to these challenges:

Another cute and adorable card design. I love the pattern paper along the edges and the way your image was laid out with the cut circle behind it.

Adorable dog, and how nice he is being to that bird ( my dog would try to eat that bird in a heart beat). Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

I love this darling card. I'm always so disappointed that the Wink of Stella doesn't show well in photos. I can image how pretty this must look IRL. Thanks for joining us at Little Red Wagon!
