Christmas Wintery Combo

***D2D Blog Hop is 2 Posts Down***

(I am posting a day late)

Theme: Christmas Wintery Combo
For many January means snow, cold and/or ice. For this week's challenge create a Christmas/Winter card/project using blues & purples. You can also use white and/or black for your neutral. Also use any embellishment that seems "icy" to you...glitter, glossy effects, clear coating, etc.

I used the Designed2Delight "Snowman Love" image.  I colored him up with lots of purple and aqua blue.  I added Purple Saphire glitter (Martha Stewart) to the hanging hearts and all the hearts on the snowflake.  I tried a new technique with the glitter.  Instead of using glue, I used Crystal Effects as my "glue" for the glitter.  It works great and really seems to hold the glitter.  I added a black layer and a purple scalloped layer to the image.  The background is embossed with Polka Dots embossing folder (Provo Craft).  The sentiment is a stamp from Stampabilities, "Merry Christmas Always" and I have used it alot during the holiday season.  Definitly one that I got my money's worth out of!  I layered a felt snowflake, a snowflake punch (Martha Stewart) with glitter added and a button on top.
