House-Mouse White on White

Hello, everyone!  I would like to welcome my new follower - Lia - so lovely to have you here! Today I have made a Christmas card. The challenge over at House-Mouse and Friends is White on White, with only the image permitted to have colour. I decided to take on the challenge!

I used an image from Joanna Sheen's House-Mouse Christmas CD Volume Two. I embossed white cardstock with Cuttlebug Snowflakes and added lots of snowflake die cuts and a little snowman. All die cuts are made from snippets left over from previous projects. Each is coated in very fine white glitter - it's hard to see the sparkle in the photo, but if you click to enlarge it, you can see it better. The banner sentiment says Merry Christmas and it's from Clearly Besotted's Mini Banners - I heat embossed it white on white, twice, fussy-cut, and then fussy-cut just the middle portion, and popped both with foam tape.  I added some lace from The Ribbon Girl along the top and some pearls along the side and on several of the snowflakes.  I also added a clear snowflake.  The dies are from JoyCraft and Impression Obsession.

I would like to support the following challenges:
