One More for Christmas Card Stash

Hello! No, I am not ready for snow .  This is just a card for Merry Monday Christmas challenge to use ski, skates or a sled on our card and you have to have some snow with this theme. I was playing with the cameo and cut out the sled with a Silhouette cut file.  I was planning to color and print and cut the sled out but that did not work out. I went to another plan and just cut the sled out of white CS with the Cameo and colored with Copics E15,R46, N4 and a silver metallic pen. I think this came out with a better look than my original plan.   I assembled the sled, added some pine boughs cut with an Impression Obsession Die , and a red ribbon bow.  I attached the sled to the card with foam tape to give some dimension. I stamped the Creative Vision sentiment with Versamark  on red CS and embossed with PSX Snowflake Embossing Tinsel which I also added to the pine cutouts. The card was assembled with GKD Red Velvet CS as the base layered with pattern papers from Crate Paper
Peppermint pad. The green paper has a distress look.

Note: I have had this PSX Tinsel "forever" and have no idea why I have it or where it came from. It has a lot of sparkle ....shows better IRL.
