Christmas eve Edwin

For two reasons I'm feeling rather happy with this one
I know Christmas has been and gone but over the holiday I was admiring this Edwin when every one was coloring it so beautifully and really wanted it, well I bought him in the sale for only £4.49 yippy, 
and secondly I've sponge painted my snow around the card and I think it looks quite good, I've only ever painted the crackle paint on before but I think it looks better this way, what do you think?

I've used the fab sketch at TOMIC for this one

Maja papers from Elaine's blog candy win (thank you)
Green satin ribbon ~ Ribbon Girl
Martha Stewart punched snowflakes covered in stickles & glamour dust
Crackle painted snow sponge painted all around. 

Thanks for looking and for all your lovely comments on my last card
Love & hugs
