Naughty or Nice

I came across a challenge over at Moving Along with the Times yesterday and the theme is winter is coming.  You either make a winter theme project or throw in an alternative twist with Game of Thrones.  As soon as I saw that I thought about the great mini hop that SVG Cutting Files had earlier this year and decided to give it a whirl.
 
Of course I had to use my Jon Snow cuts because what Game of Thrones fan can resist his charm?  Then you also have to have his trusty companion Wolf.  And so my card was created.
 
For Jon's garments I used a variety of metallic type papers.  The bottom layer of his garments were cut from black aluminum, then the 'armor' plate and cloak were cut from a black metallic paper and the shoulder pieces of his cloak were cut from a different type of a dark gray metallic paper.  All of these provided a great balance of differing shades and textures to the cut.
 
My snow covered ground was created using Martha Stewart crystal coarse and carrara marble glitters.
 
Finally, the sentiment.  As I looked through my many stamps I was trying to decide what sentiment to use.  None really stood out to me until I saw this one from My Craft Spot.  As I have watched Game of Thrones throughout the years you sometimes wonder if Jon is being Naughty or Nice.  Of course his naughty days (like the season he traveled with Mance and his gang) always end up being for the greater good.
 
But there you have it.  My first official Game of Thrones card.  Now I'm off to enter this into the following challenges:
 
Winter Theme/Game of Thrones alternative - Moving Along with the Times - Ends November 5th
 
Metal - My Craft Spot - Ends November 8th

Marley & Me (use an animal) - Red Carpet Studios - Ends November 15th
