Snow Business

I created this card for today's snow business challenge at Catch The Bug.  The image and sentiment is the Eggbert Winter set.  The base of my card is purple. I added a piece of white cardstock that I embossed using a cuttlebug embossing folder (dots).  I colored the image using prisma colored pencils.  I backed the image and the sentiment in purple and added 3 purple flat back pearls to the upper right corner of the image.  I punched a purple snowflake and a smaller white snowflake. I layered them and then added a purple flatback pearl to the center.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
