Walking In A DT Winter Wonderland and some..............................................

Hi all, 
 it is Friday, just a little reminder not too little 
as at the end of today it is the end of the week, 
which would be my first week back at work, 
and what a hectic week it has been.

Apologies to the lovely people who left me comments on the WOYWW, I am still working through the huge list of email comments to return all your visits, but I will be there don't run away will you.  Loved all the grading you did on the messy scale, did make me smile........................

I also spent sometime this week visiting those lovely interpretations of the Tag Theme that my lovely colleague set last week at Winter Wonderland.  I think I got to you all and really enjoyed coming to see your creations and leaving your comments.  You are all so very very talented.

 Which means then that today is the next challenge over at
this weeks theme has been set by our very talented Marianne
and we are sponsored by my favorite shopping location
So the theme 

"Walking In a Winter Wonderland"

I was not sure what I was going to do for this challenge,  I suggested to Marianne that I could use my Edwin and Tilda skating and hide or chop of their legs or alternatively I could use this little mouse pulling his Xmas Tree.  Marianne said the Christmas tree one, so I did.  She also said to add lots of snow, mmmmmmmmmm think I got carried away Marianne.

So where to start as this is going to be a long post (sorry again Marianne)  may be you should all pop and get a coffee.  Which I think I will do now before I continue writing this post :)  I will be right back.
OK here we go
 This is the card I created, I used the sketch from Truly Scrumptious and added one of the extra elements the bows.
Here is the sketch I followed, as you will see it is rectangular so I altered it to suit my square card. 
I also wanted to meet  Tuesday Throwdown of more than one fold
and the front of the card
 The image is from Great Expressions, I think.  The papers are from Dovecraft an 8 x 8 stack called "Let it Snow" one of my new stacks from Tilly's.  The sentiment is a justrite creation.  Using a snowflake for the centre image and the wording each letter lovingly added to state "Walking In A Winter Wonderland"  I used glitter to edge all the green base papers and the sentiment.  I added glitter to the image with a glue pen for snow and the floor.  I added glitter to the flowers and cut leaves -  stickles Ice and added liquid applique to the image for the snow and added some more to the bells. I added a ribbon to the rear of the card, and also to the front to enable the whole tri fold card to be wrapped up nicely.  Finishing off with a little snowflake charm and some dark blue little pearls.  Another favorite I think. 

So several photo's to follow of the inner pages showing another image not sure of where this came from but think it was a magazine freebie and the sentiments are in the main MSE with one Papermania for the central page.  
A close up of the bells and flowers
A close up of the charm
A close up of the image coloured with the preferred media of copics and of course lots and lots and lots of glitter.
and finally the close up of the justrite sentiment
Almost there hope your coffee has not gone cold.

As always my teamies and I love to combo, so here are the challenges I am entering this card into
