Snowy Winter's Cottage II

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
It's official, Christmas 2016 has arrived.
I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy and healthy new year!

Here is my final Christmas card of 2016.
I have used another gorgeous image from Pion Glistening Season.

For the shape of my card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #2 and Maja Design

Other dies used are; Marianne Design Anja's Vintage decoration and Ivy circle. Spirit of Christmas snowflake border, Joy crafts Ice crystal circle, Noor! oval  and Vintage flourishes holly leaves. Cheery Lynn French pastry doily and pine branches.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz frayed burlap distress ink.
The gorgeous 'Marie Therese' lace and double row pearl trim are from LLC

A close look at my Festive floral arrangements.
I used  white flower sprays, larch cones, silver beaded berries, large frosted berries and Vintage pearl pin from LLC The 25mm olive green opens roses and 30mm light Ivory wild roses are from WOC.
I coated the arrangements with Snow - Tex.
I  tied a bow with twine and a metal jingle bell to the Wycinanka reindeer's neck.
