It's Christmas....

I've been on a roll today but this card took me ages. I managed to fix my sewing machine so I tried real stitching on this one however I have missed a couple of stitches at the corners but I hopefully will get better at the stitching....I think it finishes off a card. I have used Bo Bunny Winter Joy papers, and layered it onto bazill card which I distressed, the image is from LOTV which has been coloured with copics and then I added some shading with waterpencils and then finished off with some glitter on James's hat and a snowflake!! I have entered the following challenges.
