A Card for Mo's Challenge

Well Good Morning Ladies here we are with yet another Challenge Card, this one is for this weeks Mo's Digital Challenge "Bright White", and I decided to create a Xmas card as its was a good excuse to not only get another Xmas card done it also lent itself to the challenge so easily. Ive used this snowman image for my card and coloured him with my copic pens and some glitter on his hat, scarf and gloves, Ive also popped some of the Cosmic Shimmer pva glue along the edges of the arms and hat just to make it look as though its got snow on them. The image was then cut out with my square Nestabilie die, and I then used a scalloped one for the mount. The sentiment is one of the LOV ones and Ive stamped it onto a piece of white card and mounted this on to a double ended tag die, and attached it to the bottom with some white staples.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of card that Ive stamped with some Versafine and used some snow flakes stamps on then with some white embossing powder Ive embossed them. On top of this Ive layered up a piece of vellum that has some white stars on, this was created into a square with the all around snowflake punches from Martha Stewart, it was then stuck in a diamond shape with the mounted image mounted on top.
To finish of Ive created four snowflakes with the punches from Martha Stewart and some crushed glass glitter, these were stuck around image at the top and bottom on the left hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following challenges:-
