"Artic Steed"

Good Morning Ladies, I do so hope that its not as cold near you as its been here the frost has been so bad that its looked as if its snowed and I was even cold in bed the other night so I had to go and get another duvet to put on top as I just couldnt get warm, mind you in the morning we were as warm as toast.
Todays card for Mos Dream Team is gorgeous image called "Artic Steed" and you will find it here Ive printed it onto white card then coloured it with my copic pens then used my Nestabilitie Die No.8 to cut it out afterwards I used the die to draw around for the mount, and this was done on some blue pearlescent card, the sentiment is one of the new Whimsey ones which I bought from Nikki here and I have printed it onto white card and then used one of the double ended tags to cut it out.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card and for my first layer Ive used a piece of blue pearlescent card and two papers from Kay Miller Downloads and this one is called "Artic Antics" and the first paper is an all over snowflake pattern on a blue background, on top of this I have laid a white paper with a border of small snowflakes in a 6"x 6" size and positioned it in the middle, then down the middle Ive used two organza blue ribbons and attached them to the back of the first layer, then stuck my mounted image in the middle. I then tied a ribbon bow and threaded a pearl brad with a flower spacer in the middle then stuck it above the image.
To finish of I have created two snowflakes which I have dipped in crushed glass glitter and stuck them at the bottom on the left hand side, and the mounted sentiment to the right hand side but stuck it to the card with two pearl brads.
Ive also entered it in the following Challenges:-

Another gorgeous card. Beautiful image, although it puts me in mind of Pullman's 'His Dark Materials' series!

I wish I knew how you cut with nesties leaving an overlap (like on the polar bear's leg). I never seem to cut neatly enough before placing the die.

I have to study this one a lot more! Coloring white and making it look white is tough and look how fantastic you did this. WOW! You amaze me!

me again...I'm still trying to work out how you cut out with your Nesties, but left his paw...I noticed you did the same on my lovely card, with the little elf's hat and the Christmas baubles he's holding
