Christmas Card Club-Winter Sports

Hi all today I have a card to show you that I have made for the Christmas Card Club theme-Winter Sports.
This is a first for me as I have used Edwin, and he is on his sledge, my thinking was sort of along the lines of bob-sleighing, I have only 3 Edwin stamps in my quite large Magnolia collection but I will be adding more, I have only just bought this stamp and it is the first time inked up.
I stamped Edwin with Momento black Tuxedo ink, cut him out and coloured him with promarkers.  My Copics are starting to run out and as I have at least 5 times more promarkers than Copics I thought it was about time that I seriously started to use them.
I have used blue card stock for mounting the base paper, I then used it for the fancy square die cut, I used pearlescent card for the square and embossed it with my snow fall folder.
I used double sided tape and piled on some silver glitter, I used one of my new Memory Box dies for the bottom border, card candy in white and silver was used around the square then finally I stamped the sentiment.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
If you would like to see some more Seasonal cards then please visit my other buddies in the Christmas Card Club the links are in my sidebar.
Many thanks for visiting, I will see you later as I am slowly catching up on my visits, in the mean time take care, hugs to all.
