Let it snow!

The card I made for last week's Winter Wonderland Challenge would have been perfect for this week's 'Let it snow!' theme...but alas, I couldn't use it again, so had to make something new. I followed this week's Stamp Something Challenge sketch for the layout, changing the dimensions to make a square card. I used a Sugar Nellie image ('Snowflake') stamped for me by my lovely friend Pauline, which I coloured with watercolour pencils, adding a touch of glitter and adhesive gems to the snowflakes. The gorgeous 'vintagey' snowflake paper is by My Mind's Eye ('Festive - Frost'), the embossing was done using the Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' folder, the sentiment stamp is by Penny Black, and the satin ribbon is by Anita's.
