Crafty Sentiments # 39 All White except the image

Welcome to Thursday everyone and Crafty Sentiments new challenge.  This week the theme is 'All White except the image'.  Now initally I struggled with this one as its not something I do very often and wasnt sure if I could carry it off, but hey gave it a go and isnt that the whole point of challenges?! lol  So I chose to use the adorable stamp of Lulu which is available at the Crafty Sentiments Store and I coloured her using my copics then added glitter to all her trim which really does sparkle in the light but unfortunately the photo doesnt really show it, then I embossed the image and its background cs with swiss dots folder to hopefully give the impression of falling snow (saw it done last year and thought it was such a good idea now I've done it myself not so sure!lol) this is then matted onto another piece of cs this time embossed with winter words and finally the card blank itself has been embossed with snowflakes using a fiskars texture plate.  I then added some white ribbon to the edge of the card and a bow (I finally like making bows now I know the bunny ears method!) my final embellishments are my leaves, flower and button.  Now its all finished I'm actually quite pleased with the result and will definately do this type of card again.

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