New Puppy

It's pouring here in Northern Ireland today and the best place to be is in your craft room!
I've made another easel card  this time with my "new Puppy" digi image which is available from A Passion for Stamps. I didn't actually intend to use this image on a Christmas card but when I started to colour it I was drawn to reds and greens and picked out Papermania Jesse Edwards Boutique paper. Towards the end of the card I decided to add some snowflakes because I thought they would look well.
I've added some Papermania glitter glue to the collar and cuffs  and also to the snowflakes.
The background "frame" is the negative from a Marianne Creatables die cut  and the swirls are from the same set.
It's coloured with Promarkers and I used them to colour the gems too (ruby)
