Critter Sketch Challenge #44

I have a card created today for this week's Critter Sketch Challenge.  This week's challenge is to create a card using... "No Pattern Paper"!  Yikes!!!  This can be done, but strikes fear in the hearts of most card designers!

Here is the card I created using a digital image from Bugaboo Stamps,  "Mary Joseph and Child".

My card stock is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  I sponged distressed ink over the snowflakes and tried to use "earthy" colors.  My image is colored with Copic markers and my border was created with a Martha Stewart Punch.  I added ribbon and a Spellbinder's die to enhance my sentiment. 

Thanks for visiting and please check out the other "Critters" blogs to see their creations!
