Winter Wonderland DT Card

Good morning all and it's almost welcome to the weekend.
This weeks challenge at Winter Wonderland is a theme

"See Amid the Winters' Snow" = which is anything with snow on it really.  

 Our sponsor this week is Teri's Delicious Doodles and her digi images are gorgeous and well worth winning.

So I chose to do a snow scene.  Again after searching the world of blog land I came across a sketch that I liked on Stamptacular Sunday Challenge I rotated it to fit my image.
This card also meets the following challenges

Fab 'n' Funky Challenge - Metal Mania - I used some metallic foil glitter paper for all those snowflakes

 Papertake Weekly Challenge - Shiny, Sparkly, Special and I hope I have not gone overboard with the glitz snowflakes

Anyway enough of my waffle you say - so here it is
An easel card again, with mint green edged MME papers in tones of browns and greens.  Pearls from the Hobby House, foil glitter paper (cannot remember where this is from sorry).  The image not sure of make but was one of my first ever stamps purchased and was from the Hobby House.  Fiber glitzy ribbon from Grimsby Crafts a little while back. I used my new Nellie embossed dies (the oval set) and used liquid pearls to give the image plate an edge.

 Here is the inner return close up
 This is an MSE sentiment

The image close up
 Coloured in copics using a clear glitter "Atyou" pen for a fine shimmer of glitz on the snow covered roof tops etc.

 Oh I am also dead excited as I won, on Creative Inspirations Challenge 59, can't wait to spend my voucher  :) and my winning La La Land stamps are in the post too, the postie better watch out I will be hounding her again :)

As always this will post whilst I am at work, thank you blogger for being so helpful.  I will link the challenges when I get home again.

Thank you all for the recent wonderful comments.

Hugs and Glitz
