Light up the Holidays (Newton's Nook stamp / IBS Frame)

Hello, everyone!  I'm back again today with another Christmas card!  This time I was inspired by two challenges!  I really like the colour inspiration over at Inspired by Stamping (see below). This is the first time I've played there!  Did you know that you get some fabulous freebies if you sign up for their newsletter? I just signed up today - go check it out!  And the other challenge that has inspired me is Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge This will be my second card for their Add a Little Sparkle challenge.

I just can't stop playing with my Newton's Holiday Mischief set.  I got it for my birthday last month, and cute little Newton just makes me smile!  I coloured the image with my Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut.  

Check out the awesome frame behind the giant glittery snowflake!  This is one of the freebies I was talking about above - I got it today when I signed up for Inspired by Stamping's newsletter.  I printed the frame, stamped the sentiment (from the Newton set), and embossed it with Cuttlebug Snowflakes. I found the giant glittery snowflake (a set of them) at the thrift store last year.

Here's the Newton's Holiday Mischief stamp set I used:
