Another Christmas Card

So I'm back with another post .. yay it stopped raining so off I went to take a picture of my card. Not usual for me to have two posts in a day but  I made this card especially for the FESTIVE FROLICS Blog Hop at Wild Rose Studios and I didn't want it to end before me having the chance to join in as well. There are lots of fantastic prizes to win ..

This card is quite similar to my previous one, in fact I did both cards together, but of course I'm using a totally different image, from Crafty Sentiments this time and totally different colour scheme too!

I coloured image with my promarkers, some stitching on this one, but I'm really not pleased with it. I didn't realise how tricky it would be to stitch in circles... so now I know!  I stamped some snowflakes on my paper today. The gold bow was on a chocolate box. I'm really so pleased I kept it, I think it came out quite nice :)

And this is my new Poinsetta Spellbinders die which I am using for the first time yay :)
For the centre I didn't use the centre die that came with the set, I do think it is quite large when you want to make a smaller flower. So instead I glittered up some little punched circles.

I am entering my card in these challenges today:
