Christmas with Create a Critter

It's hard to believe that Christmas is not that far away.  The good thing about most of this weeks challenges is the theme is "Christmas in July" which is forcing me to start my Christmas card making!  Never too early, especially when we are expecting a new baby girl in less than a month and a half!
So here's my take....using what else but Create a Critter.  I also wanted to use my NEW My Pink Stamper set called Winter Punnies.

Materials Used:
-A2 Size Card (all cardstock by Recollections
-Recollections Precious Metals in White Pearl (snow & snowflake)
-Create a Critter by Provocraft (chick p. 53 cut at 2 1/2", tree p. 33 cut at 2", racoon cut at 2 1/2", scarf p. 39 cut at 2 1/2", lights p. 73 cut at 1/2")
-Light patterned paper Mom's Diner "Salt" by Recollections
-Dark patterned paper by Recollections Bright and Jolly paper stack
-Winter Punnies stamp set by My Pink Stamper
-Glossy Accents
-Martha Stewart Snowflake punch
-bling from stash
-Memento Tuxedo Black ink
