My Time to Craft- Christmas in August

Hello my lovelies...its the weekend!!! and a bank holiday weekend at that.. you know what that means..? yep ! rain! lol!
anyway, a little something out of season today... I really need to crack on with the Christmas cards.. I did quite well last year, so hopefully I can do the same  again... 
well. I digress.. here is my card using the Mulberry Wood stamps. I love these..

the image is called Christmas Wishes , coloured with my Spectrums... the papers are from the Mulberry Wood cd, and I have simply made the papers grey by using the Colouriser. the die is a Memory Box die, I think it looks quite striking in black, and I have cut it out 4 times to create a frame round the image. I have used mainly IG1-8 and DG3 and LG1-2 and DR4 and CR3 for the cardinals.. Then I went for a red button to pick up on them. the sentiment is from the stamp set. 

 I picked out the snow with a white pen, and added a little glitter.
so, I would like to enter this in..
