Christmas in August? Kinkade - Stoneheart Hutch

With all the Christmas challenges around I decided to make a Christmas card too.
I used a Thomas Kinkade stamp called Stoneheart Hutch and colored it with Prismacolor pencils. I added some white Fun Flock on the snow, but it's really hard to see, but you could definitely feel it.
The satin ribbon's color looks really weird on the picture (wonder why), in real life it's more like the CS. I kept the layout really simple to keep focus on the image.
I'm entering it into the following challenges:

Winter Wonderland
- walking in a winter wonderland
The Crazy Challenge - make a Christmas card
Sew Many Challenges - Christmas in August
The Creative Cottage challenge - christmas
Christmas card challenge - vintage - Kinkade stamps sure have a vintage feel

Oh, it's beautiful, your colouring puts me to shame! Love how you put the big snowflake slightly underneath it with pearls on the edges, great embellishment.
