Christmas in July card 1

Thank goodness for Cuttlebug Embossing folders. Karens Doodles are doing a challenge this week where you can only use white on white. The only thing you are allowed to colour is the image. Gosh I found this one difficult.

I have followed the sketch over at One stop craft. The image is a Karens Doodles image called First Snowfall which I have coloured in with Promarkers. I cut out the image with my circle and scalloped nesties. I have embossed the diamond shape below the image with a Cuttlebug folder called Ice Crystals and embossed the base card with a spotty Crafts Too embossing folder.

I have cut out the snowflakes with a Martha Stewart punch and stuck a white pearl in the middle. I stuck the snowflakes onto the card with Pinflair glue gel.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges
