Digital Tuesday non traditional Christmas

It's freezing here today!! Pouring of rain again! At least the snow didn't last though :)
It's time for another challenge at Digital Tuesday and the challenge this week chosen by me is Non-Traditional Christmas (don't use the traditional green/red combo or use an image that you wouldn't normally use for a Christmas card).
Our sponsor this week is Stamp Fairy who are giving away a $10 gift certificate to the winner and the design team also got to play with a Stampfairy image.

So  here's what I made

 The cute image is called "Barry countdown to Christmas" and he was coloured with Promarkers.
Papers are Websters Pages and the butterfly strip was done with my new (ish) Tonic Studio border punch. The ribbon which I have had for ages is really sparkly and has glitter, sequins and tiny seed beads of it (think you can just about see some of the beads at the bottom right corner of the image).
For embellies I used some silver snowflakes with dew drops and a clear plastic snowflake which I think was originally part of a Christmas decoration but they ended up in my craft box :)

You can see the clear snowflake better here. Oh and I also added a tiny paper snowflake and a clear dew drop. I love when I can recycle things and use them on my cards instead of it ending in the bin! an it makes a really cheap embellishment :)

Finally a close up of the image, which I must admit I didn't do a very good job of colouring! 
I'm hoping Santa brings me some new markers for Christmas because I'm running out of most colours in both Copics and Promarkers, so don't have at actually work just now, but don't think that's very likely, so better get saving after Christmas! :)

Thanks for stopping by and hope you will have time to check out the challenge this week.
