PaperPlay Challenges - Let it Snow!!

Good afternoon!! Well if you read the title of this post you'll see that our challenge on PaperPlay this week is LET IT SNOW.. no explanation needed, right??! Well you'd think that anyway ... but if you can find snow on my card you've got great sight.. or a wonderful imagination, lol. I totally lost the run of myself and just made a CHRISTMAS card, not a flake of snow in sight.. is it too late to change the challenge??? ha!!

My image is called Angel Delivering Christmas Tree and I've coloured her with copic sketch markers, then I cut her out and mounted her on 3D pop dots. Once I had her stuck down I stickled her wings.  The sentiment is by Lili of the Valley.

My papers are Cosmo Cricket 'Mitten Weather' and are just gorgeous IRL. I've inked them all with Antique Linen distress inks and added a cream doily to place my image on. I've also added some fabulous lace :)

The large flat flowers are Prima Craftables and I've coloured them using Patina Glimmer mist. Just a couple of spritzes so that it didn't cover the whole flower, I wanted the splashes look. I added Wild Orchid Crafts Rose and pearls to the centres. I used the Whiff of Joy 'Leaves' die to cut out my leaf and placed it behind the flowers. For a bit of extra bling I used some Prima e-line pearl swirl
