Using a new stamp!

When I went to Harrogate earlier in the year, I bought a new Christmas stamp from Little Claires that I had seen last Christmas but never got round to ordering, I've finally inked it up for a no colouring challenge I had spotted - but I should really read the rules first as I found out after I had made the card it wasnt suitable as I wasnt using the correct image - oops.

I have stamped the image with momento cocoa ink pad onto kraft paper and added stickles to the snowy bit and then added gingham ribbon to the side from Hobbycraft. I've made a cheats bow as I still cant get the hang on my ribbon tier thingy - I keep getting a big knot at the back, but if I only tie it once it seems to work loose??? I've followed tutorials on you tube but my bows definately dont look like theirs - lol.

I would like to enter this into:

Little Claires - christmas
Craft your passion - get krafty
Simon says stamp -anything goes
One stop crafts challenge - no dp

An update on my little owl - its coming along nicely although we did nearly have wonky wings its really quick to stitch so might have it finished tonight.

Thanks for looking
