Dream Valley Challenge 22 - Christmas

Woo hoo... excited to be posting my first card as part of the Dream Valley Challenges design team.  The theme for this challenge is 'Christmas' and is the last one for 2011.  Here is my card.
The stamp is from a set by Papermania.  Kept it quite simple with a bit of colouring with Promarkers and glitter glue used for his scarf.  Used some papers from Papermania which are so festive.  As embellishments I added an embossed panel, a mock poinsettia which I made using one of my punches, some glitter fern branches using a Marianne Creatables die and some peel off snowflakes.  Of course, there is plenty of glitter for that added sparkle.
There are several prizes for this challenge so why not pop over and have a go.  While you are there check out all the fab work done by the Dream Valley team.  The challenge will end on 7th January so plenty of time to join in.
