Cold & Snowy

I made this Christmas card for my sister. I used Snowy Hug from Magnolia Stamps. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. The base of my card is pink. I embossed the white layer of cardstock using a cuttlebug embossing folder (dots) and my sizzix machine. I added a strip of patterned paper from EK Success the the bottom of the card. I backed the image and sentiment in pink cardstock. To finish my card I added crystal stickles to the image, the top edge of the patterned paper and to the snowflake. I added pink gemstones to the upper left corner and a pink heart gemstone to the snowflake. I am entering this card into the following challenges:
