Sweet Pea Stamps Marlon Teunissen's "Cold"

I have used my Tim Holtz backing papers that my son bought me for Christmas 2011.  Well you can't keep it un-used forever can you?  I've stamped around the edges with two new small snowflake stamps, the teal paper was stamped with Tim Holtz's Broken China distress ink pad and the brown paper was stamped with Tim Holtz's Brushded Corduroy distress ink pad.  The image I have used is available as a stamp or a digital image from Sweet Pea Stamps and is called "Cold" by Marlon Teunissen.  It's certainly an approrpiate image for this weather.  I have coloured the image with my Promarkers/Flexmarkers and coloured around the edge with a Cloud Blue Flexmarker and then used a See D's dotty stamp with a white Versamagic ink pad to give the illusion of snow.  I then used a Martha Stewart lattice punch on some teal card and covered over one end with some blue ribbon which I must have had for about 8 years - well before I started cardmaking - so not sure why I kept it.  I have finished the card off with a clock die stamped with the same blue ink pad and snowflake stamp and cut in half, teardrop gems, Craftwork Cards sentiment, flower, button and decorative clip.
