I Love Promarkers DT Card - Christmas in July

It's challenge time again at I Love Promarkers, this fortnight we're giving you a chance to get a head start with your Christmas cards, as our theme is "Christmas in July".  We are sponsored this time by Col Art (Letraset) and Opal Crafts, meaning you have double the chance to win as we have two sponsors for this challenge!
I've gone cute and CAS for my DT card, and I've managed to keep it totally flat so that it can go standard post and not large letter like most of my cards do.
 The cute character and sentiment stamps I used were both from a magazine freebie set from ages ago, until now uninked.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and added crystal glitter to the bunny's fur trim for some festive sparkle sparkle.
I created the background very simply, using torn paper, Salty Ocean Distress Ink and a Clarity dusting brush.  The eagle eyed among you will have noticed that there are snowflakes stamped on the background.  These were stamped in Perfect Medium with Papermania stamps, then dusted with a very pale mica powder, and were almost impossible to photograph.  You'll have to take my word for it that they a lovely and shimmery in reality!
Once I'd matted my stamped and inked panel onto the card blank, the final touch was to go around the edges with some Star Dust Stickles for a bit more twinkle.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
