Crafty Purple Frog Challenge - 8 December 2011 - It's cold outside

It's time for another challenge over at the Crafty Purple Frog Challenge.  This fortnight the topic is "it's cold outside".
For my card I have used an image from the Flights of Fancy CD which should hopefully be on sale soon.  There are some gorgeous goodies on this CD.  I have used an image called "Serene Winter".  It's certainly a wintry image and fits in perfectly with the challenge Topic.  I have decoupaged the image and then highlighted areas with my Sakura Stardust clear pen and also with some Polar White Flowersoft to look like snow and give it some texture.  Whilst it was still wet I sprinkled in some white glitter to give some extra sparkle - well it is Christmas.  The backing papers are all from the scrap box and include some embossed vellum.  I have finished the card off with some wintry snowflake wire edged ribbon, snowflake 3D stickers, two Marianne Designs scrolls, sentiment and some buttons.
