Just Christmas & Birthday Cards #13

This is the perfect challenge blog to get at least one Christmas card done a week. Over on Just Christmas & Birthday Cards there's a fab sketch by Linda. You can do both a Christmas and Birthday Card or just choose one. I've of course gone for the Christmas card option, and this is my first for 2009. I've rotated the sketch:

The stamp is 'Mimi & Snowman' from Pink Gem Designs, coloured with copics and sakura stardust. Inked the edges in pink and then mounted onto blue glitter card. The backing papers are from Funky Fairy's. I used some pink and silver wavy ribbon from my craft stash on the bottom of the image and finished with blue and pink circle gems. I've left off a sentiment for now, and will add one nearer Christmas when I know who it's for. Below is the sketch:
