Let it snow

This is a non-traditional colour scheme for a Christmas card - green, purple and blue.  I really struggle with blue for Christmas as I am a green and red kind of Christmas girl but I decided to go further.  I have used an image from a Dilly Bean Stamps collage sheet and just coloured over the red heart with a purple Promarker.  I have used various papers from my stash and also a paper from Bearly Mine Designs Summer's Lace Dreams.
I have made the flowers to match with remnants of the three backing papers and held together with brads.  The checked backing paper is a scrap I had.  I have torn some white card to resemble mounds of snow and edged it with Stickles glitter glue for some sparkle and shine.  The card has been finished off with a Craftwork Cards sentiment, Marianne Designs die-cut, glitter snowflakes and some gems.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
