Hero Arts Collage Christmas!!!

Today's card is one I have been rolling around in my head for a couple of days.
Although I like collage stamps I have to admit to prefering individual stamps to make up my own collages but I did rather like this HA stamp.
I just wanted a fairly simple look without a lot of colour so I have stamped and embossed in silver onto a gunmetal grey pearlised card. Trimmed and mounted the panel onto Bazzill-Rain (my favourite colour) and then removed the scene panel.
Stamped another scene panel onto the non textured side of a scrap of Bazzill-Rain using a black ink pad and then coloured the snow areas with a white gel pen before adding Frosted Lace Stickles using a fine paintbrush. The picture is tiny and applying the Stickles from the bottle just swamped it.
Added punched snowflakes and gems and a touch of glitz to the holly berries with the Stickles.
Paper is K & Co from the Peppermint Twist range and I added the punched border by marking with a pencil and punching with Bertha Big Bite.
It turned out exactly as I wanted it to first time....no embarrassing mistakes in the bin.......lol!!!
Hope you like it.
Thanks for dropping by.
