Another 'Blue Peter' card because the craft desk has construction work going on on top of it!

After embossing a piece of pearlised card with a 'snowflake' folder, it was layered onto pink then layered onto the card base.

The 'trees' were just triangles cut from some pink paper which I think was free in a mag about 3 years ago!
I gave the trees liberal helpings of  Stickles to give them a bit of sparkle, then layered the paper (cos it was quite thin) onto the scraps of pearlised card.

The rest of the card was torn and layered onto the bottom and the little foam snowman slipped in between the two layers. More stickles liberally applied to make the snow on the ground sparkle!

I tied some pink and white twine round his neck for a scarf! (Won't keep him very warm will it???? LOL)

The sentiment was PC generated and secured with a sparkly snowflake button.
