Ice and Snow

Hi everyone,
No, my title doesn't refer to the weather forecast, it's the theme for the Sugar Bowl's latest challenge.  I'm entering this card using 'Gayle's Sketch' which is the other part of their challenge and I've used lots of sparkle, glitter card and icy blue coloured gems to give the feeling of ice and snow. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be showing up too well on the scan.

Card Details:
* Image - Sugar Nellie - 'Elise'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers -  Dovecraft 'Winter Wonderland'
* Punch - MS 'Embossed Zig Zag' and Paper Shapers 'Wave Flourish'
* Everything else from my stash

I won this lovely Sugar Nellie stamp ages ago in a challenge but this is the first time she's seen ink as, I'm ashamed to say, I'd forgotten all about her. She's not actually a Christmas stamp, but I thought she worked quite well for this challenge.

I'm sure you'll all be pleased to hear that I think I've now finished making all my xmas cards, so I should be able to stop complaining about how I hate making them and get back to making what I want. The funny thing is, that now I know I don't have to make any more I think I may join in with one or two of the xmas challenges and make a start on next year's cards, how contrary am I?

This is so gorgeous sweetie. Even in photo's I find the splendour doesn't show up. It is so annoying. This still looks lovely though. I have finished my cards but not written all the envelopes yet though.
