Let It Snow

It's time for a new challenge at Winter Wonderland, and this week it's

The prize is a ₤10 parcel of goodies, provided by our generous sponsor 

This card could not be more unlike my last card that it is
only slightly more than a CAS card. 
I had intended to just put a few dots of snow around Snowy's head, but I added 
some extra that made the design look unbalanced, so 'went the whole hog'. 

This ever so cute image is Snowy, by Penny Black. Many people believe him
to no longer be available, but I managed to find him (new) recently on eBay.
This is the first time I have used him, but I think he is going to
become one of my favourite Christmas stamps.

As it always appears white, I usually use Star Dust Stickles to provide sparkle 
on images, but I didn't think I had enough left for this card, so I used Kindyglitz
Crystallina, as I have a large bottle of that. Unfortunately, Crystallina tends to
take on different colours in different lights, and also on different cardstock.

Inside my card is extremely basic, and I did use up my remaining Star Dust
Stickles on the edges of the die-cut. Here you can clearly see the difference
between the Stickles and Kindyglitz.
