Magic in the Snow or Is it in the Air?

I made this card for several challenges including There's Magic in the Air where Nilla brings us this weeks challenge to use the colors Red & Cream. I used a sketch shown to the right from a "new to me" challenge Blog Craft Your Passion. I used a digital image from Paper Cupcakes called Sweet Trouble. I printed this on an Cream CS and colored with Copics in reds and creams and sponged the edges with Memento Rhubarb Stalk. Used Dotted Pattern paper from Basic Grey Oliver  and a second pattern from Basic Grey Jovial for the sentiment and accent strip. Both papers being red and cream.  Used Cream card base same as the image CS. Used brads that I colored with red Copic to match red in the card, a rhinestone on the dog's cape, and ribbon on the tag with the sentiment from GKD "Fanciful Tags". Added some Frosted Lace stickles to the dog's hat, the ground for snow, and snowflakes in the sky. Can you see that it is snowing?

Challenges:
Paper Cupcakes: Magical Monday Challenge- use red and cream.
Craft Your Passion: Sketch #33
Cards for Men: Christmas card for a man. Trouble has some Christmas candy canes for my man.
Critter Sketch: Food...Christmas candy is a food???

ABC Christmas: X is for Xmas.
