Christmas Sports for Edwin

Hi all I didn't think I would be around for the next few days, I had toothache really bad and booked into the emergency dentist on Friday morning, it turned out that I had an infection in my sinus's which was affecting my teeth, I am now on a strong does of anti biotics, so I decided to sit down and make a card.
This is what I came up with I have used my Edwin on his sledge, I have used Basic Grey Nordic Holiday papers and paper pieced him, the rest of him I coloured with Copics, I added some snowflake brads for the corners, also die cut snowflakes and tree, I added a stamped sentiment and pearls, I used TH Blue Jeans Distress ink to distress around the image and sentiment.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Many thanks for visiting I will see you all later.

Hello Lorraine,

Sorry to hear you're struggling with your sinuses, hubby does so I know how horrid they can be.

You still created a really lovely card and super paper piecing, one of my favourite techniques.

hope you soon feel a lot better and the antibiotics kick in quickly.
