Season of Love

Good morning!  Happy Monday!  Hope you had a nice weekend and your week is off to a great start.!  I'm still scrambling, so my post will be short this morning.  I'm popping in to share a card I made to add to my Christmas card stash.  I'm nearing the end finally, but I am still way behind on the mailing part.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are GKD Lipstick Red and the patterned papers are from the Recollections Bright Christmas 6x6 pad.  The adorable image is a digi called Snowman Couple from QKR Stampede.  It was one of the stamps I won in a challenge recently.  I printed the cute couple on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored them with my Copics.  I added lots of Stickles for extra sparkle and some Polar White Flower Soft for the snow.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  It was part of the recent Winter Club.  Some chevron ribbon and a dimensional ornament sticker finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
