Mimosa is Christmas

Good morning!
It's been a week since I posted a card and even longer since I made one, so I decided to make one last night, using this cute Bildmalarna stamp called "Mimosa is Christmas", which I bought a couple of months ago.

I'm entering the following challenges with it:
Roses on Paper, challenge #24, with the theme - "A Christmas Card".
Stamp with Fun, challenge #31, which has the theme - "A card with a scene".
Stamp with Stampavie and more, challenge #68 ,with the theme - "Stars".
Cute Card Thursday, challenge #85 , with the theme - "Primary Colours - Red, Blue and Yellow".

My card:

I wanted to make a little winter scene. The image has been coloured with watercolours as usual, cut out and mounted onto a circle of a blue card, where I had already stamped some stars. After that I added some sparkle to the stars with my sakura gelly roll pen and added snow with some stickles - frosted lace. You can see how well it sparkles in the next two photos. The paper is Basic Grey, Wassail and I used this lovely sentiment stamp from the Whiff of Joy, which came in the autumn kit, but I think it can fit any season and goes very well with the stamp I used. The yellow ribbon and the pearls are from stash.

You can see how it sparkles in this photo. I must say I really like how these three colours work together.

Thank you for stopping by and have a lovely day! :)
