613 Avenue Create Monthly Challenge ..Twist Gold and Green

Hiya ,todays challenge card has been made with an image from Toadstool Printable's on Etsy..There are some really pretty quirky stamps of little people and flowers with animals as well as more this type of image ..,so worth having a look through.
I have coloured him in with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card...The background was coloured using chalk as I just wanted it to look light.I them mounted him onto Gold Mirror card ,this I also did with the backing papers too..I have used for the main background a paper from First Editions Gilded Christmas ..beautiful papers throughout ,you will see more as I do more Christmas cards no doubt.The strip of green and white Mirri card behind the image is from a big stack I acquired from C&C a month or so ago and is made by Kanban ..This addition helps to pop the green on the snowman's hat and scarf.The gold die-cuts I have used are Spelbinders Holiday Greetings No 4..To finish I added a sentiment and popped some gems in the center of the star/snowflake,these themselves have a tiny snowflake in them..very pretty..Thank you for popping by :)xx
