Now onto my DT card.....

I made a step card this time and used my 2 matching hAnglar images in their winter clothes and cut the out to place back to back. They were coloured with Promarkers and the white bits on the clothes have been covered in Glossy Accents and Glamour Dust. I used my snowflake embossing folder to cover the main card base and right behind the images. The snowflakes are cut using my Pot-pourri Basket Cartridge and i have given them the Glossy Accents/Glamour Dust treatment. The sentiment was also a Cricut cut from the Wild Card Cartridge.
The ribbon and gems are just from my own stash.

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges;

Lovely Hanglar Only - Take Two (Use 2 Images)
Stampavie and more - Monochrome
Paper Take weekly - Putting on the Glitz (sorry the snowflakes and white areas on clothes dont show up the glamour dust very well)
Our Creative Corner - Cut It Out (images cut out)

Thats all for me tonight. Thanks for reading my rather large post and i hope to see you all with your super "Winter" projects over at the Craft Us Crazy Challenge blog! This challenge will be open until Wednesday 2nd March!
