On A Cold And Frosty Morning!

Before I start with my second post of the day I have an apology to make, I'm busy trying to get some of my course work done over the summer break which means I'm not blog hopping as much as I'd like to,I think it's taking it's toll and I'm feeling more than a little sad to see that this afternoon I have lost a follower!!!!  I hope that this isn't the first of many,the sooner I get my work done,the sooner I can get back to what I like to do best,visiting my lovely crafty blogging buddies so please,hang around till I'm done :)
On to my card:-
Thankfully we shouldn't be seeing any thing resembling this beautiful picture in my neck of the woods for at least a couple of months but hopefully it might inspire you and get those creative juices flowing as the challenge for this fortnight at Southern Girls is to use this Photo as  Inspiration .

The Australian and New Zealand sponsor is Scrapboxx and the international sponsor for this challenge who are one of my favourites is"Meljen" the Design team were given a choice of images,something I found a little tricky so I ended up using two! I coloured them using Copics,cut the images out and added stickles.

I used Nestability scalloped circles to cut the card and the layers using the Let It Snow paperpack by Dovecraft. 

I drip of glossy accents was added to the berries.

Foam pads were used between the layers and to place the images onto the card.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
DDCC38,Anything goes,digi,
Lexis 45,Shaped card,
MIM47,Anything goes,
Pollycraft 103,Christmas in July,
Creative Inspirations 64,Christmas in July,
