Holly Jolly Christmas-MIM

Hello Everyone! Ready to start another week? Can you believe it's the last week of March already? Yikes! The way this year is flying by, I'll be needing Christmas cards sooner than I'd like to think. ;) 

With that, I have made my first Christmas card for our Make It Monday link-up party. I used an image from our sponsor Rick St. Dennis. It's called Holiday Cottage Scene. He has a wide assortment of digis and I'm sure you would enjoy looking through all of them. 
The paper is from Making Memories-found it at Big Lots on the cheap, so I'm pretty sure it's retired. The ribbon is Recollections and the flowers are a wide assortment. I added some stickles to make the snow sparkle, but it's not showing up very good in the picture.
Copics:
Gray: W5, 3, 00
Red: E19, 07
Green: G21, YG 03
Blue: B0000, 000

We'd love for you to join us! Remember, to be in the running to win the prize from our sponsor this week just leave a comment for another entry. Be sure to mention you saw them on Make It Monday. The more entries you comment on the more chances you have of winning!
