Crafty Calendar challenge DT card

As it is the first friday of the month it is time for another challenge at Crafty Calendar challenge! The entries last month were gorgeous, thank you all so much! This month we would like you to create a winter themed card or project with the added option of sparkle - a perfect accompaniment to winter cards! It doesn't have to be a Christmas card, it can be a winter birthday card, wedding card, whatever you fancy!
I have used two gorgeous stamps from the Whiff of Joy winter kit, Freezing Willow and the sled packed with gifts. I have coloured them with copics in colours to match the papers which are K&Co. I have added glitter glue on the presents and MS carrera marble glitter underneath the sled. I distressed the edges of the image mat with a mixture antique linen and weathered wood distress inks and then I have stamped the three snowflakes from the Whiff of Joy winter kit with white Q chalk and while the chalk was still wet I added glitter to them.
The sentiment was cut from one of last years' Christmas cards LOL - I save so many bits like this, it came in useful eventually! The writing matches the cardstock I used perfectly!
I punched snowflakes using a MS snowflake punch from mirrored turquoise card (saved from the same card as the sentiment) and white card which I have covered in glitter. Turquoise gemsones complete the snowflakes. You can see in this photo that I made Willow's cheeks pinker than I usually colour to represent the fact she is really cold!
The gold chiffon ribbon is from my stash and I have rippled the tails of the bow in various places and adhered to the card with silicone glue.
Thanks for looking and I hope you can join us this month. Check out the rest of the DT's creations, they're gorgeous! x
