Christmas Fun DT card - Baby's first Christmas

The second theme for February over on the Christmas Fun Challenge Blog is Baby's first Christmas.
Having searched through all my Christmas stamps ( was I surprised how many I have!) I found a teddy bear one that was a freebie from a magazine - but I can't remember which one. I stamped in black Archival ink onto white card, coloured in using ProMarkers. Went over the snowflakes with a blue glitter pen. 
I have recently bought some Perfect Layers rulers & was eager to try them out. I found some 'Christmassy' card, stuck the stamped image onto this, used the Perfect Layer ruler - wow! this was really easy, a perfect border! Stuck this onto some red paper from Cosy Christmas Collection ( another freebie from a magazine, but again can't remember which one!), used the Perfect Layers ruler again and another perfect border. 
I covered some card with some green patterned paper from the Cosy Christmas Collection, stuck some red ribbon across, stuck my stamped, layered image to this. Made two tags, stamped Christmas but had to write 'on your 1st' as didn't have a stamp for this. Threaded some red ribbon through the tags & stuck to card using foam pads.
Hope you like it - pop across & join in at Christmas Fun Challenge Blog - get ahead with your Christmas cards!
