Blue snowflake

This sweetie called Snowflake from Sugar Nellie is one of my favourite Christmas images and as there are several Christmas challenges about this week I thought I would make another Christmas card. The elegant background paper is Papermania Aqua capsule collection and the dotty paper I found in my stash. I used Sakura white souffle and silver pens on the dots on her clothes and added silver glitter as a change from white on the snowflakes. The dottie foam snowflakes are from America, blue bows from Wild Orchid. I used silver thread on the buttons for more sparkle.

Stunning Marianne, how did you do the dots on the white cardstock. Did you dot each one with a pen? That must have taken hours. I just love the look. Thanks for sharing it with us at SSC.
