Let It Snow

I created this Christmas card using Snowball from Pollycraft. The base of my card is aqua card stock.  I cut a piece of lavender card stock just a little smaller than the card base.  I cut a strip of lavender gingham patterned paper and backed it in aqua and white after I punched each with an eyelet lace border punch.  I added a piece of aqua ribbon to the middle of the gingham paper and then added it to the center of the card.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils and cut it out in an oval. I backed both the image and the sentiment in aqua and cut around them using scalloped scissors.  I added snowflakes to the corner of the image and to the sentiment.  I added crystal stickles to the snowflakes and on the image (snow, snowballs and wings) and added a lavender pearl to the center of each snowflake.  I finished off the card by adding two aqua pearls to the upper corner and two to the bottom corner.
