By The Cute & Girly December Challenge

Morning, on the count down to Christmas and not a pressy bought...said to myself last year I wasn't going to leave everything to the last but it looks like I'm going down the exact same road, well can only hope I can do better next year lol!
Another challenge ready to go over on By The Cute and Girly and this month it's LET IT SNOW. This month our digital sponsor is The Paper Shelter who kindly gave us some images to create with so will be showing mine over the coming weeks. Have used Warm in the Winter and Snowman on this card.

 A window shaped card that's been lying in a drawer for the past couple of years. Just perfect for what I wanted to achieve with my image, all cold and frosty outside and cosy and warm round the fire inside. Just how I like Christmas.  Accetated the windows, embossed them first with snowflake embossing folder, put it through the Cuttlebug a few times to whiten the snowflakes. Added Stickles Frosted Lace to the outside panes once the card was finished.

 Used Marianne Snowflake dies and Christmas tree. Snowman coloured with Promarkers

 Marianne Icicle Die, Icicles ,stickled with Frosted Lace and top with Flower Soft

 Think there must of been a glare coming off the Acetate, looks like a film down the right side. Must try in Winter daylight again.
Inside decorated with Christmas papers, Marianne corner die, lace, Ribbon (coloured with promarkers to match) and Hero Arts Warmest Wishes sentiment.
