Snow Many Challenges

Hi all, try to make this brief, firstly I heat embossed the snowflake onto Elegant Eggplant cardstock, which was to create your own masterboard/paper. Then I coloured in Holly the Fairy a digital image from Mo's Digital Shop, so love this image! She is coloured using a mixture of copics and markers, her wings are a mixture of special effects and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, special effects has been used on the bells and holly in her hair and on her dress, I also paper toled the lace on her dress. I then hand stitched round the edges and added little metal bells and beads. Then used various ribbons etc., just so love the snowball ribbon and the purple edged ribbon has a gorgeous sequins edge, finishing with a metal snowflake. All the edges on the cardstock have been distressed and I sponged the edges of the cardstock that has Holly on. Took loads of pics but really struggled with the light. Will see if I can improve on it tomorrow.
