Lili of the Valley Christmas Blues

Good evening everyone, hope you are well! Here is a project I adored creating-with my gorgeous new Lili of the Valley stamp I have wanted for ages and the stunning 'Snowfall' papers by Bo Bunny.
I started by colouring the stamped image in Promarkers, Flexmarkers, metallic pen and with a dusting of Crystal Glamour dust as my snow.
I then cut around him with a scalloped nestie-I chose to cut them both with the scalloped ones because it felt like it added movement to the image. He was placed on a Tim Holtz Coredinations mat which complimented the papers. I used one paper mainly and added two strips of other design papers from the stack, then added a Papermania felt snowflake cut in half as a decorative detail-its difficult on male cards not to use flowers! I then added a gold 'Christmas Wishes' greeting in the bottom left hand corner and three Card Candy which complimented the paper in the opposite corner.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
