Snowflakes and sparkle

Phew! It's been a very hot week here! I hid in the craft room and cooled myself down with thoughts of snow and ice  creating this card for our challenge over at Crafty Catz, the optional theme for this week is Christmas in July, the snowflake ballerina is courtesy of our lovely sponsor-

Prize - 3 images from store

I coloured the image with Copic markers and a white gel pen, adding plenty of glitter, which has a lovely sparkle IRL. the background is a snowflake die cut panel cut from silver glittercard layered over deep blue glitter card. The snowflakes are cut from white card and white vellum then layered together. I've added ribbon, gems and a die cut sentiment. 

This will be our last challenge before the summer break, we'll be back in September,  it would be great to have you join us - you do not have to follow the theme, as always we love to see anything you have created.
Thanks for visiting- enjoy your weekend
