Snowflakes a plenty!!

Hi all, hope you're having a fine Thursday wherever you are. Its not so nice here today, got drenched doing the school run but the upside is I've had a couple of hours this morning to myself to get something crafty done and boy did I enjoy it. I think when my little girls goes full time beginning of November I am going to have to allocate myself a set crafty time as nothing else is going to get done I would quite happily craft all day everyday so I think I'm going to have to be strict with myself (yep good luck with that then!!!).
Well onto my card, I've been wanting to have a go at a tent card for ages and I've finally made one and I love them. They're so easy to do and providing your embellies are not too big they fold quite flat aswell. I wanted to frame the aperture with lots of snowflakes so I die cut and punched some out of pale blue and white glitter card and also punched out some holly leaves and put those around too. The stamped image is of course Sugar Nellie 'Hug in a Mug' and I love this one (I say that about all of them!) and she's coloured with copics. What I 've started to do lately is when I stamp an image I stamp a couple and colour them both at the same time and then try and make two cards out of the papers I've got on the go at the time.
I've distressed my papers with my scissors, inked and added some stickles to the edges and also added some gems to some of the snowflakes and little red ones to the holly leaves for berries. Just another piccie to show the front view.
Papers used are My Minds Eye - A Signature Christmas, Marianne Design dies for the snowflakes, Sugar Nellie image and sentiment is Inkadinkado.
Well I think thats about it really. Got an autumnal card on the go at the mo which all being well should be done soon, so I'll catch you then.
I'm going to enter my card into a few challenges:-
Take care.
