A winters tale

This is my take on the new challenge 'Christmas Snow and Ice' which starts today over at
Crafty Cardmakers. Please pop over for all the details and see what our generous sponsors are offering as prizes,  Di's digi Stamps and Hobbyart
I began by random stamping my base card around the edges using Broken China distress ink.
The snowflake layer was again random stamped then heat embossed using silver metalic glitter Wow  embossing powder. There is a piece of angels web material next but it is hard to see on the photo,  a piece of dry embossed music was my next addition.
All shading  used  on the card is Broken china DI
The snowflakes are stamps by Chloe.
There is a Spellbinders snowflake die cut under the ribbon bow.
For the main image I used a Stampendous stamp using London Fog memento ink.
I only  coloured the sprigs of holly as I wanted it to look  a bit grey. Hopefully  it looks  like one of those dusky days in winter when it has been snowing and every thing is still.

Challenge No 7 over at Country View Crafts  is Layers. So I will be joining the fun over there as well.

Thank you for stopping by, I always appreciate your comments.
