I Love Promarkers DT Card - Christmas in July

It's challenge time once again at I Love Promarkers, and this week, despite the warm weather, our theme is "Christmas in July", and we're sponsored by Letraset.
 I've made quite a simple card this week (shock horror, I know).  I really wanted to show off these fab Papermania Christmas in the Country papers, they look just like fair isle knitting and woven check, and didn't need much in the way of embellishments, just a matching bow from the same range.
The image is a Marianne stamp, it was a magazine freebie last year which I hadn't got round to using, I coloured it with my Promarkers to match my red, navy and kraft colour combo.  I added some Star Dust Stickles to the ice, Liquid Pearls for snow and a border of Ice Diamond round the edge of the topper.  I like to use Cosmic Shimmer white PVA for this rather than a glue that dries clear, as the Ice Diamond is a clear glass product and reflects the colour underneath, this glue make it look nice and white and snowy.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
