Cheerful stamp pad challenge 101: signs of Christmas

This is my design card for the Cheerful stamp pad challenge 101: signs of Christmas. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and we would love you to join in our challenge.

The image is a super one kindly provided by Stitchy Bear Stamps by Gingerloft called 'head first'. I digitally put this on a deep blue background and added the lyrics of the song in white. I then printed this out and coloured the image with spectrum noirs, adding some Art Institute glitter as snow. The snowflakes were punched out using some white pearlescent card and I put some quickie glue here and there to sprinkle some more of the Art Institute glitter.

This is also for:
