hAnglar and stAnglar - Christmas Love!

Dec. 11th - Update! My card came 2nd in the Sarah Hurley masking challenge Whoo-hoo! 
Hi Peeps - I think it's safe to say that almost all of the UK is covered in white fluffy stuff today - looks fabulous doesn't it!
This is just a short post, to share a card before I settle in to my armchair to watch Strictly!
I am entering this into A Spoonful of Sugar - Anything Goes,
and Sarah Hurley - Masking.
I managed to find a gorgeous hAnglar and stAnglar Christmas stamp set on e-bay (with the help of a tip-off from a blogging friend - thanks Larissa)!!
The cute little girl has been "masked" onto the basket of cookies and hearts, which is also part of the set.
Image coloured with Copics and watercolour pencil.
Edges inked with Antique Linen and Weathered Wood Distress inks.
Pale creamy pink base card from SU.
Grey/green layer - Co'ordinations.
Red ribbon from stash.
Machine stitching around the layers.
Glitter - SU.
Christmas sentiment - Pink Petticoat.
Die Cut heart - Cuttlebug.
Thanks for looking - Keep warm - love to everyone who visits ......

A really gorgeous card Sylvia, all the little details just perfect.
No fluffy stuff down here though. We had a tiny sprinkle yesterday which didn't stay. It's absolutely freezing though (wind chill 0f -8!!!)
Hope you stay warm.
