Use White and one other colour or A little bird told me - Winter Wonderland Challenge for the 26th of August

So today it is my turn to host the challenge at Winter Wonderland.
The theme I have chosen is:
"White with one other colour"
"a little birdie told me"

This means that you can make a Christmas project with white and one other colour, or something with a little birdie, or both.
I have used a digital stamp that I have used before that has a snowman and a little birdie and I have coloured this with a few other colours, as it is hard to stick to one colour!
So my card fits the "A little birdie told me" theme.
Here it is:

I printed the stamp "Joy of Christmas" by Crafty Sentiments Designs on to X-Press It paper, cut it out with my Silhouette Cameo, then coloured it using the following Copics pens:
  • hat: C3, C5, C7, C10, black Wink of Stella, clear Wink of Stella
  • snowman: C00, C0, C1, C2
  • snowman's cheeks: R20
  • snowman's nose: YR09
  • snowman's mouth: RV17
  • snowman's stick arms: E37
  • snowman's scarf: R35, R37, R29, clear Wink of Stella
  • little bird: R27, R37, E74, YR09
  • tree: YG06, YG09, G05, G17, G29
  • star: Y28, gold Wink of Stella
  • snow: C00, C0, C1, BV0000
  • background: B000
I then adhered a piece of paper from Holly Bright by Kaisercraft to a Kraft card from Envelope Solutions. I also adhered a red snowflake ribbon and "merry christmas" ribbon, both from American Crafts "Father Christmas" double-sided ribbon.
The snowman and little birdie were adhered using pop dots.

For the layout, I used the ABC Christmas Challenge - Q is for Quick Layout.
Also I'll enter this card into the August Rudolph Days Challenge.
