Waltzing Mouse sketch challenge

Hello everyone,

Happy Thanksgiving to any visitors from the US - have a great day! Having a day to think about all the things you have to be grateful for seems like a very good idea to me.

Whilst joining in the Blog Waltz at Waltzing Mouse stamps, I noticed that they have a regular challenge and decided to do my first try at a sketch challenge. This is the sketch you had to use:-

I decided to make a winter birthday card and turned the sketch on its side for my design ( I hope this is allowed).

 I used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dot folder to emboss the card and left a central area in the card for the sentiment. I used the WM Holiday Labels stamp and Nesties Labels 14 to mat and frame the winter tree from Inkylicious. I added glamour dust for a little frost on the tree, although this doesn't show up very well on the photo, and a couple of stars for bling. The black dotty ribbon finished it off. 

Thanks for looking.
