Joanne Schempp - Ice Ice Baby

It seems very strange making a Christmas card in the heat we have at the moment.  I don't do the cold but I don't do heat well either.  For my card I have used the Sweet Pea Stamps image by Joanne Schempp called "Ice Ice Baby".  It is available as a digital image and a rubber stamp.
For my card I have used the digital image and coloured in with tones of blue with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers.  I have highlighted areas with Stickles glitter glue.  I have stamped a backing paper with three freebie snowflake stamps I have got and Tim Holtz's Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire distress ink pads.  The DCWV snowflake backing paper I have torn.  I have cut around the image and laid on top of a Marianne Designs die-cut which I have put Imaginations Crafts Diamond Sparkle onto.  I have finished the card off with a stamped and die-cut sentiment, seam binding ribbon bow, button, gems, twine and pearls.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
