I Love Promarkers DT Card - Shabby Chic

We have a new challenge for you today at I Love Promarkers, this time our theme is "Shabby Chic", and we're sponsored by Fabrika Fantasy, who very kindly gave the DT some images to play with.  I chose to use Winter Games 2, which I coloured with my Promarkers, using some Star Dust Stickles for a bit of glitter and some White Gloss Nuvo Drops for falling snow.
 The papers are from a Papermania pack called Pocket Full of Posies, I picked it up for a pound at the SECC show last October.  I scuffed all the edges with my Tim Holtz tool for a shabby look and added kraft card for matting.  The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.
To embellish, I added some chunky silver snowflakes that have been in my stash since the year dot, and a few crystal gems.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Fab 'n' Funky - #339 - Christmas
Christmas at Sweet Stampin' - Anything Christmas Goes
Sparkles Christmas - #73 - Krafty Christmas
Winter Wonderland - Anything Christmas Goes
QKR Stampede - #231 - Add Sparkle / Bling
Creative Corner - Winter Wonderland
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 - #106 - Sketch
