Winter Wonderland

This is my card for the design team inspiration challenge at Stamptacular Sunday. I took inspiration from Danielle's card. I used the shades of purple and the sketch she used. I even used the bow and purple flowers. However I chose to make mine into a Christmas card.

I added crystal stickles to the bow, roses, around the image, snowflakes and ice on the image. I also added white pearls to the center of each snowflake. I embossed the white cardstock with a cuttlebug dot embossing folder. I colored my image with prisma and crayola colored pencils. I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Hello Mary, so proud my card inspired you to create this little beaty. Using this embossed background, that imitates snow fall, is such a lovely idea. Your image is a cutie that reflects winter happiness. Wonderful shades of purple! Great job.Thank's for playing along with us this week in our Stamptacular DT inspiration.
