snowy and Hedgie

Hello Everyone, 
What an absolutely gorgeous day, blue sky, sun shining and all my washing hanging on the line!! And what am I doing. . . .making Christmas cards!! I have to say it was very strange taking a photo of this one with all the sunshine outside!!
The Winter Wonderland Challenge this week is to have embossing as part of your main image. I've used a Penny Black rubber stamp called 'Snowy and Hedgie'
I have embossed the white background with a Crafts Too Embossing Folder - snowflakes. I cut the image out so the snowflakes looked like they were falling behind Snowy and Hedgie. I used 3D foam pads to reattach!

The navy background is embossed with a Crafts Too Embossing Folder. I used my spellbinders edgeabilities for the border.
The Christmas tree is cut with a marianne creatables die, and finally I added a ribbon from my stash and a bit of bling!
I'd like to enter the following challenge:-
Winter Wonderland - Embossing
Thank you for taking the time to stop by.Have a good day and enjoy the sunshine if you can.
