Non - traditional Christmas Colours at Creative Moments

There's a new Design Team badge on my sidebar, I have the honour of joining the lovely and talented ladies at Creative Moments Challenges!
My first DT card for this fabulous challenge is made using this adorable stamp, Skating polar bears from this fortnight's generous sponsor - Jellypark. The challenge theme is non-traditional Christmas colours. I chose to use black/cream/bronze. The design is quite simple to focus on the image, which I have coloured with copics, die cut with a circle cutter and part fussy cut to layer it onto the black 'snowy sky', the snow is created with frantage. It's then matted onto embossed cream cs with a bronze glitter frame and mounted onto a black card base. I added a couple of die cuts and a few gems to finish.
Thank you for visiting today, I know how busy everyone is at the moment! I hope you can find the time to hop over to Creative Moments to enjoy the lovely creations from my new teamies! It'd be great to have you play along this challenge, the last one for 2014!
