Cocoa Tilda On Snowy Branch - Midway Reminder At LHOSM

Hello again, lovely blogger friend's.
If you would like to see my first post forThe Ribbon Girl November Anything Goes - Any Image challenge then you can find it HERE

So I'm back with my midway challenge post for Lovely Haenglar Or Sweet Magnolia
Our current challenge theme is...................SNOW/GLITTER
Our wonderful sponsor is The Ribbon Girl with a £10 voucher for one lucky randomly picked  winner!

I have used both snow and glitter on my card.

I used Cocoa Tilda and masked her with Snowy Branch.
The image's are stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Bristol board extra smooth cardstock and cut out using a CartUs circle die.
I have coloured the image's with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.

For the shape of my card Iused GoKreate large frame frilly #5 and Maja Design Vintage Spring basics from The Ribbon Girl 
Other dies used are: Marianne Design Anja's Vintage decoration and Ivy circle.
Sizzix on the edge snow flurries, Joy! Crafts Ice crystal circle and Billes flourishes.
Cheery Lynn pine branches.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz Vintage photo distress ink.
Most of the embellishments on my card are from Live & Love Crafts
The white Vintage little angel and blue beaded berries are from Magnolia,nu

A closer look at my floral arrangements.
I used 30mm light Ivory wild roses, bark larch cones, white flower sprays, 20mm baby blue open roses, 2 - tone blue lilies, blue besded berries and white Vintage angel.
I coated the arrangements with Snow - Tex.
The bronze Christmas tree charm is also from LLC
I adhered 3mm white s/a pearl flatbacks and tiny blue rhinestones into the recesses of the tree and coated it with Snow - Tex.

A closer look at Cocoa Tilda on Snowy Branch.
I surrounded the image's with shabby white embossing enamel and adhered a length of 2mm white pearl string around the outside.
I used Glamour dust on Tilda's ear muffs and the snowy branch and dotted Tilda's cheecks with a white gelly roll pen.

Inside the card is decorated with design paper and the smallest of a
 GoKreate large frame frilly #5 die cut.
