DT Card for Christmas in July Challenge

This is my 2nd card as part of the Design Team at WhoopsiDaisy.  You can enter this months challenge by following the link in the side bar of this  blog     I tried a new idea for me by adding a domed layer of snowy acetate over my image.  The background I cut using my Cricut Explore then added pearls on some of the cross sections.   A couple of snowflakes and red bows plus my greeting embellished with a green diamonte finish it all off.  My image is from  Linniepinks cd which can be purchased from the etsy shop  (again see the link  in the sidebar of this blog).   I cut my image twice in order to  decoupage her and give her dimension.   I glittered the fur on her hat and coat then added a diamonte to her hat and the waist of her coat,  The scarf and bag were also layered up to help enhance the dimension  All the images on LinniePinks CDs are superb to work with so don't be afraid to purchase them and have a go.  Look forward to seeing your entry into this months challenge at Whoopsidaisy.
