Dancing in the snow

Good morning, and a sunny morning it is too after yesterday's horrible rainy day. I popped into Hobbycraft yesterday and found some new Kraft card blanks and envelopes which at £3.99 for 30 was a good price I thought so have used one here. They seem to be gettig more products in for serious crafters and also had some items on special offer and as I had a £4 voucher if you spend £20 also bought a set of Nesties labels 2 which I have wanted for a while so got the card blanks for free.

I have so many new images to use it is hard to know which to use first. Also putting some stamps away the other day I came across some old favourites which haven't been used for far too long. Anyway today my card features one of the newer Lili of the Valley girls. She has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers with a bit of Sakura gold star pen and lots of lovely glitter. I used my MS PATP snowflake set and then added the punched out snowflakes to the design. The snowflake has been made with gold glitter card and a Marianne die. There's a lot going on in this card with buttons, pins, ribbon and lace. My favourite sort of card which also has distressed edges and sanded Core'dinations.
