Crafty Catz Challenge #300 ~ Winter

Good morning well the weather here today in Dorset certainly fits with the theme over at Crafty Catz this week, our wonderful Aunty Sue wants to see Winter on our projects well looking out of my window this morning, we've got wind, rain, fog and it's cold so I think that classes as wintry!  Just missing something else that I am not going to mention but is shown on my card! Anyway we have a wonderful sponsor for you, this week it's
So onto my card which should have been nice and easy and straightforward but everything that could go wrong did but I wont bore you with all the details but is safe to say I now have a little less hair! lol  So I have used this cute image from Crafty Sentiments Designs and coloured him with copics, spectrums and first editions, added glamour dust to his snow balls and liquid pearls and a touch of flower soft to his hat. Cut him out and layered him onto the background which has been embossed with swiss dots, some ribbon and a bow, added the stamped sentiment, matted it all onto some blue cs and added the die cut mittens, He turned out ok in the end!
