In The Snow (just like it is here!)

With all the snow on the ground at the moment I decided to make this snowy scene.  Thank goodness its starting to melt, I hate snow unless its on a Christmas card!
The stamp is Lili of the Valley and I've coloured it with Promarkers.  I've used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink round the edges and those of the scalloped blank too.  I then added some Anita's 3D Gloss to the boots and lantern, some Diamond Stickles to highlight the fur trim and some Liquid Pearls for the falling snow.
The papers are Wild Rose Studio and were a magazine freebie last year.  I love the contemporary colours of this stack and the slightly distressed look they have.
The banner was die cut with my new Spellbinders Mixed Media die set and inked with Tumbled Glass before being stamped with a sentiment.
I made the flowers with my old faithful Nellie Snellen punches.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Sketches by Carly - #53- sketch
Passion for Promarkers - #143 - whatever the weather
Stamp With Fun - #155 - no Easter cards
Christmas Card Throwdown - anything goes
