God loves a trier!

Damn it!
I was so pleased with myself, last week, to enter my BOO card over at LIM,
until I realised I had fallen foul of the challenge rules.
I really should learn to read the small print.
So, here's my second attempt - just a couple of problems
1. it's probably not CAS enough and
2. it's a day late!!!!
Ha ha!
God loves a trier.

I made a little snow scene with some pretty DP and my landscape die.
 The cute LOTV bear is coloured with Copics and stickles glitter
 (I also dotted some glitter on the pink DP)
and then he is popped up on foam pads.

Looking through my sewing box this week, I came across some bias binding 
and wondered how I could use it on my cards.
It's a little thick for tying into a bow, so I experimented with stamping on it. 
It works beautifully  - and the binding is only about 20p a metre.
