Lothian Crafts Online December Challenge

Hi Folks
Just popping by with my second post of the day.  
Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Lothian Crafts Online.  Our theme for the month of December is
Christmas using your dies
You are free to create anything you wish.  Just make sure that you have used dies in your project.  The winner will receive a £10 voucher to spend at Lothian Crafts Online.

Here is my inspiration project for this month.

For this card I embossed a piece of white card with my snowflake embossing folder.  I inked it lightly using some distress ink and matted onto silver cardstock.  I used the Horizon Pinetrees dies from Marianne for the little trees at the bottom.  I did add some flower soft to give the impression of snow.  The snowflake was done using the Marianne snowflake 2 die.  I did add some glitter for added sparkle.  The sentiment panel is from the Marianne Anja large oval die.  I inked around the edges and added a peel off sentiment and some pearls.  

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to Lothian Crafts Online blog to upload your entry.
