Adorn D. Yard, the cutest snowgirl around

This cute little snowgirl is called Adorn D. Yard. I thought she was the perfect image for a glittery card. I downloaded this Sweet November Stamps digital image (also available in rubber) yesterday so I could use it on this card.

Most of the other materials on this card are pretty new. The papers are from two Dutch paper pads (Art Talent from Evora – Kruidvat?) that my sister sent to me for my birthday. She certainly knows I love my blues and reds, lol. The sentiment is a Sweet November rubber stamp that was part of some candy that I won recently over at Amy's blog. The image and the snowflakes (cut with my Silhouette) were coloured with Spectrum Noir pens. The cardstock is Papicolor, and the ribbons, star gems and glitter glues (white on the snowflakes and gold on the string of popcorn) are from my stash. The image was cut out with a brand-new Nellie Snellen multi frames die.
The layout is based on this week's sketch over at Sketch 'n Stash:

If you are using any type of markers, you can also use them to colour your embellishments, like I did with my snowflakes. That way you can create a perfect match with your coloured image. It also means you can create a stash of white embellishments (esp. if you're cutting them with a Silhouette machine or similar) that you can adapt if and when needed.
