Christmas Card Club

It was Vickie's turn to choose the theme for this fortnights challenge and we've been asked to use snow and/or snowman/woman. Here is my card:

The decoupage image is from Flowersoft and I've used a mix of flowersoft and glitter to highlight the snow. Image is matted and layered onto blue mirri card, base card has been scored and a gem added to the corners.  The rest of the gang are listed on my side bar and if you'd like to join our little fun challenge get in touch with one of us.
