Christmas Landscape

A simple Christmas card to add to my pile today, made using a beautiful Tailored Expressions die, which cuts like a dream, and, even although it's incredibly detailed, all the bits just fall out of the die, it really is top quality.
I bought it at the SECC last October and hadn't got round to using it until now, my mind is now busy with lots of ways to use it, I have itchy fingers to keep playing!
 I cut die cut silver glitter card, mounted it onto patterned paper, and filled in the snowy foreground with off white glitter card, to created a winter scene.
The pretty papers are Lili of the Valley, Snow Princess, to which I added some purple cardstock for matting, the camera has made it look more blue than it really is.
The sentiment and snowflakes were die cut with Tattered Lace dies, borrowed from my Mum, and to further embellish, I added some layered ribbon, a button topped bow, and some large aqua pearls.  I wanted to keep it all quite simple to showcase the lovely, glittery die cut topper.
