Glitter & Sparkle - Add Some Snow

Sooo, it's Sunday, which means that it is time for another challenge over at Glitter & Sparkle, and this week our challenge theme is to Add Some Snow

I used an image from one of our sponsors, Crafty Sentiments, to make my card:

I decided which papers I was going to use before I coloured my image, so took the colours for the image from the papers, hence they are bright, as I used my Merry Magic paper pack, which I got last year, simply because I very rarely use it and I love the bright Christmas trees on the paper I have used.  I used promarkers to colour my image.

I chose a green card blank to match the papers and a blue satin ribbon, which I got from Crafty Poodles recently.  I also made a bow from the ribbon, attaching this to the corner of the image, where it overlaps the ribbon.  I then attached a coordinating button brad to the centre of the bow.

Finally, I attached a bright chipboard sentiment, which I think I got free with a magazine last Christmas, and flat-backed gems from my stash to each corner.  The photography hasn't picked up the colour of the gems very well, but they are green (on the DP) and blue (on the image) to coordinate with the rest of the card.

I am quite happy with this card, as although I have a full set that coordinates with the papers and could have easily used these, everything on the card comes from different bits of my stash, and just happen to go really well together.  I was intending to make a boy card, as I have loads of girl cards, but I'm not sure now whether it is suitable as there is a fair bit of pink on the papers, and I gave the snowman a pink hat.  Saying that though, pink does seem to be popular amongst the men in my life at least.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
