Challenge #101 - "Signs of Christmas"

This should really be an easy challenge.  The theme is "Signs of Christmas".   There are so many ways you can enter this challenge.  You can enter anything you wish-a card, a tag, home décor, ornament and the list goes on.  Just make sure it has one aspect of Christmas in the entry.  Here are some ideas from the Design Team.

The images that the Design Team are using are from Gingerloft and Kaz Kraftz which are found on the Stitchy Bear Outlet.
My card is deeply embossed with an pattern of snowflakes, swirls, flowers and other Christmasy pattern.  The focal point of the card is two layers of a Spellbinders die and a Cheery Lynn Design die between them.  On top is an image of holly leaves found on the Stitchey Bear Outlet website.  In the corner is a cute little snowman and snowflake.
I love this digital image called "head first" by our sponsor Stitchy Bear's designer Ginger Loft.  I started with red cardstock and added a bit of designer paper from my stash that i thought looked a bit like a house.  I printed the digital stamp, colored it with pro markers, fussy cut it and added it to the card. The little round Santa and the "ho ho ho" are sentiments from my stash.
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 was then mounted on to a dark blue stardream card blank.
Week one of the Signs of Christmas challenge I chose a door digital stamp from Stitchy Bear/Gingerloft. When I printed it I thought oh it's too dark to colour it but as you can see it turned out beautiful. I added the cardinal and a scrap of gold ribbon. Layered on gold and on cranberry cardstock then attached it to Recollections Kraft cardstock. The snow is white opal liquid pearl. The cardinal is not part of the digi from Gingerloft.
