Are you all white? Simon Says Challenge

Good evening all! As always I'm posting last minute :) I created this card for the Simon Says Challenge Are you all White? As you know from the last all white challenge these are a struggle for me. I love to build scenes so I tried to do so with no color (eek) Let me know what you think!
The image I used is a Stampavie stamp called Dearest Deer. So adorable :) I stamped it in jet black archival ink. I colored the little guys in with distress ink and my H20 pen. I used brushed corduroy, vintage photo, walnut stain, barn door, and peeled paint. I colored the bells and the string with my silver metallic gel pen. I cut the stamped image out leaving a little white border.  For the background scene I embossed a sheet of white with the swirls and another with swiss dots. Both are by cuttlebug. I used frosted lace stickles and outlined all the swirls to imitate blowing snow. I cut the swiss dots into hill shapes and added glossy accents to all the raised dots. The apron scallop border is an EKSuccess punch. I adhered the border punched pieces to the swirls. Then I glued that piece to a white card base. I adhered two the hills flat to the card. and then added my image. When I glued the image down I only put glue on the bottom so the top would stand up a little. With the last two hills I adhered them with foam. As a finishing touch I added glossy accents to the scarf, bells, and holly berries on my image. Here are some close ups.
