Christmas in August

Hello, I'm still on holiday this week, but it's flying by so fast.  My daughter and I are driving down to Andover in Hampshire this week to visit my cousins.  We're both looking forward to having some serious girly time.

Anyhoo, onto my card today.  I've used Titania by Sugar Nellie, coloured with copics and coloursoft pencils and she's had buckets of crystal art glitter dumped on her.  I cut the image out using Spellbinders Labels Seventeen and inked around the it using Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky DIs with the die still in place.  The paper is from Nitwits Heavenly collection.  I used a Memory Box Frosty Border die cut out in white glitter card and some Martha Stewart punched snowflakes cut out of clear vellum and dusted with glitter, the jewels in the centre are from my stash as are the little pearls and clear dew drops.


I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
