No Square or Rectangles Cards Allowed at the Winter Wonderland

Hi all in the land of blog
Today sees the next challenge at the 

where you still do not need to use Christmas images if you do not want too.

The theme this time is hosted by the lovely Linda and it is

No Square or Rectangle Cards Allowed

we are sponsored this time around by the wonderful
Crimson Cloud

Now you may have noticed that so far this year I have not made a Xmas card, so this is my first of many.  I got some lovely dies for Xmas so just had to play with them, so here for you is my design team inspirational piece, but don't forget to hop over to the main challenge site to check out some more fabulous eye candy from the WW Teamies.
I made a very large snowflake card :)
The base is a grand nestie scallop circle with a smaller grand normal circle of some gorgeous papers that I got from Grimsby Crafts, along with the adorable image which is a Nellie Snellen.  The roses are from Wild Orchid and have been airbrushed as has the image plate with BG23.  The dies used are from Dies to Die for and is a Memory Box die called "Snowflake corner" I have cut this out several times to surround the image plate.

The image has been coloured with copics in the BG range in the main, but have used liquid appliqué for the falling snow, polar white flowersoft for the fluff on his little coat and ice stickles around the image plate and on the roses.

I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors for taking the time to leave me such lovely and inspirational comments and for allowing me the opportunity to visit you in return.
