Let It Snow

Playing with my Copics I had the idea to do a nearly all white or very pastel shaded image against a night backdrop with snow.  The snow in the background was created with a white polychromos pencil and a white gel pen.  I've had this image for a while it's one of Ching Chou Kuik's.  You can find her shop on Etsy.

Here's a close up of the winter white flower arrangement I added.  The flower can be found at Noor Design and Wild Orchid Crafts.  The wooden leaves are white painted ones I got in Hobby Craft.  I've added some DecoArt glitter to the leaves and scatters a bit onto the flowers.

Behind the flower and between the layers of design papers is a paper doily.

Mu design paper are from Lili of the Valley and Maja Design.  I've used a couple of die to cut out the icicles and trees.  To these I've added lots more DecoArt glitter.

There's also a wooden embellishement - Let It Snow.  I've also glittered this up :)

Finally at the bottom of the card is a piece of pom pom trim.  I've had it ages but think I got it from The Ribbon Girl.

Hope you love my inspiration for the challenge and we see you there.
