GDT Card for The Christmas Challenge - Hand Made Backgrounds

This is my first GDT card for The Christmas Challenge.

A big thank you to the Design Team for asking me to join you - there are some great challenges coming up over the next couple of months!

For this challenge, the theme is 'hand made backgrounds' and you can find all the details about the challenge and see the cards from the DT members here on the challenge blog.

I created my background by stamping a small snowflake stamp in Versamark ink and then embossing with white powder.  I then applied Brilliance Ink from the Peacock pad over the top and then polished it to finish the background.  The image is from the 'Black Silhouette Camels' outline sticker sheet from Little Claire which you can find here.  I put it on to acetate and then attached this to the background with brads.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - 'music' ('We Three Kings of Orient Are')
Aud Sentiments Challenge - 'Christmas sentiments'
Jingle Belles - 'not a creature was stirring'
Hiding In My Craftroom - 'use a critter'
Paper Crafting Journey - 'anything goes'
Challenges 4 Everybody - 'anything goes'
