Snow Queen, glitter and bling!

Good afternoon! It's dark and it's raining so a good time to be indoors in the warm although lot of drama going on in this house today, Mathilda has cut her paw, blood and bandages everywhere! Just as well our new carpet cleaner turned up last week, it's had a baptism of fire.... well blood! She wasn't terribly cooperative about having said paw bandaged, and can remove the offending object far quicker than we can get it on... she's not going to be too impressed about going to the v.e.t. either......
Anyways, back to the card! I love this beautiful image from AuroraWings, Mitzi Sato-Wiuff is so talented. I coloured the Snow Queen using my copics and with hindsight I wish I'd left her face white! I used loads of glitter and bling so she really sparkles in daylight! The photo really doesn't show it very well! The edges of the image are flitter glued and covered with silver mega flakes and steel blue crushed glass glitter. The edges of the embossed background have added frantage. I kept the design simple to focus on the image. Thanks for visiting, going to check on the poorly paw!
