Good afternoon everyone, I hope you all had a good weekend :o)

I have just finished making today's card, but before I show you I would like to thank for my top 3 this week, I am chuffed to bits.
for this card !

And on to today's card.

I have used Dove craft Winter wonderland Paper pack for the backing papers on this card and layered them onto silver paper.  I have also used lace and ribbon down the middle of the top layer.

The image is a Lili of the valley stamp called 'igloo for two' which has been stamped onto a Nellie Snellen die cut and coloured with pro markers.  The die cut has been inked the I have use silver liquid pearls around the scallops.

The sentiment is a stamp from the dove craft Christmas wishes stamp set and has again been stamped onto a nellie snellen multiframe die cut and inked and pearled.

The Snowflakes are Marianne creatable die cuts, I have inked the edges, used star buttons for the centres which I have glittered and tied thread through, I have also glittered the snowflakes and snow on the main image.

Here is a close up of the lace and ribbon as I covered most of it up in the end. Duh!

I will be entering this card into the following challenges

Thank you for stopping  by.
