Christmas Bunny

My first Christmas card!  Either I'm early for 2012 or way behind for 2011 but either way,  it's still a Christmas card!
I've used Christmas Bunny from Whimsy's Wee stamps, available at Bec's store.  The image was coloured with Copics, the bottom left snowflake is a Memory Box die called Bianca and all the other snowflakes are Whimsy's.  The top left is Winter's Jewel and the other three are Layered Snowflakes .  The papers are from First Edition's Christmas Joy pad and the pearls are from my stash.   I used Flower Soft for the snow and added Glamour Dust to the hat and Perfect Pearls to the background.  That blasted red smudge!!  The hat was the last thing I did and my hand wobbled on the thin line... drat!  And you know how nasty red is to fix - what began as a tiny little smudge just spread and spread!  I tried to disguise it with Glamour Dust and Liquid Pearls but the camera doesn't lie.  Oh well....

You've still got a couple days to enter the August challenge and have a chance to win that fab Memory Box die and then the whole month to enter September's challenge which will be posted soon.
