X-mas pocket card...

This is the first pocket card I've made... I love it!!!

I won't be able to make the bookmark I planned to go with this card today though as I am too tired now and will be going to bed...

As I had been totally satisfied with the result of this pocket card, I did add some stickles to it the next day. Here's how it looks like now:

I also made the bookmark for that X-mas pocket card today. As I wanted them to look alike, I used the same stamp and colours.

And now, both together:

Stamp: "Hedgehog with present" from Penny Black transparent set Critter Party
Ink pad in black and red
Colours: Polychromos from Faber Castell
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities, Magnolia Doohickey
Punch: snowflake border from Martha Stewart
Paper: squares from Crafts-Too
Shaped scissors
Pearls, ribbon, stickles, plain papers and cardstock from my stash.

I am entering the card in the following challenges:
