Another Christmas card - thanks to the challenge blog!

Luckily, over at Glitter n Sparkle, I had another Christmassy challenge... show some snow

I got the image of Mary Sanderson...
She is a witch, in the Hocus Pocus film!
The challenge was to "show some snow" so I (hope) I made her 
look quite different.
I embossed the background and added a digi stamp sentiment.
I also found some sparkle varnish in my christmas stash
(which I bought years ago in Canada) 
and painted it on the embossed snowflakes, with the teeeniest of paintbrushes!
A little sparkly gem finished off each snowflake
and a length of sheer ribbon, tied along the bottom. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges...

Fabulous card Vic! Love that you were able to use your witch image to create a holiday card. Great colouring on your image, love the rich colours and the sense of depth. The snowflakes look great with their added sparkle and shine. Thanks for playing along with us at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday this week!

Your card fits the snow theme perfectly! The white snowflake embossed background goes so well with the sentiment, and your coloring is beautiful!

That is sooo perfect... Upon looking at your card, I started to sing "I'm dreaming of a white christmas..." too. :) That's a very fabulous creation. Best wishes on Christmas to you and your family.
