Pixie Cottage #46 - Let It Snow

It's time for another sketch and theme challenge over at The Pixie Cottage.
With the cold weather coming to visit us here in Texas and snow forecast for most of my homeland of the UK (and lots of Europe too) you'll be glad to see the theme fits perfectly!

Scrappy Frogs - Merry Christmas
Crafty Creations - Christmas is Coming
Cards For Men - Christmas for a Man/Boy
Digi Doodles Shop - Anything Goes
Hodge Podge Shop - Anything Goes
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Anything Goes

Paper Play - Let It Snow
Simon Says Stamp - Let It Snow
Stampin B's - Snowflakes
Crafts and Me - Snow
Treehouse Thursdays - Glitter

Card Recipe:
Image- Winter Window by Sandra Hammer
Paper- Homemade Christmas Stack DCWV
Medium- Copic Markers
Sentiment- 7 Gypsies
Glitter- Stickles Icicle
Shine- Liquid Embossing Sepia Gloss Finish


This is the sketch you can choose to work with this week.



I added lots of Stickles for the snow on this one, took 2 thick coats to get it as sparkly as I wanted!
I really like this image, nice to make a classic looking card instead of cutesy for a change and I hope you like it too.
