Snowman Choir - Sugar Nellie

Good morning everyone hope you are feeling better than me. Off work with a stinking head cold, but pumping in the cold remedy, and I don't mean rum and blackcurrant :)

I made this a few days ago when my new stamps arrived, it's another Sugar Nellie 'Snowman Choir'.  Isn't it amazing how you have an image in your mind when you start a card then end up doing something completely different. I went from having 3 dp to using none.

I am a bit of a spendaholic when it comes to dies and stamps and I had bought my lamp post and mistle toe MB dies a few weeks ago and was determined to use them. To have them really stand out I decided that a plain core'dinations card was all it needed with silver mirror board as a mount.  I stamped and cut the image using SB labels 25, masked and then added distress ink to the background.

Coloured of course with Promarkers and copious amounts of Glamour Dust added and Ice crystals for the snow they are standing on.

I also added 2 MB fences and cut the LOTV sentiment and backed it with a SB lacy square. Flowers are from WOC with a little Snowtex added to the roses The 'snow falling' is peel off as is the holly corner. Pearls and charm from my stash.

The inside does reflect the front.

I am entering the following challenges:-

Thanks for taking the time to look. I will get around to your blogs when my head clears a little, it feels as if it is full of cotton wool atm.

I think rum and blackcurrant are actually ingredients in cold medicine:)! Well they should be at least.
Love love love this card. The dark paper against the white die cuts and image looks amazing. The pops of red really makes the card so striking.
