ABC Challenges - "X is for EXtreme"

Good Morning Crafters, well we are already half way through December and its only 10 days to Christmas, I sincerely hope that you have posted your cards and you are almost completed the present list and now all you need to think about is the food.
Well over on ABC Challenges we have reached the letter "X" and for this its all about being Extreme, and we are being sponsored by Marianne Designs


And for my Card I have used both a Marianne Image and a Die


I have used Image HM9436 which is of two young people struggling against the snow, I stamped it out and coloured it with my copic pens, afterwards I used a Marianne die to cut it out and before removing from the die I inked it through the design to create the effect you can see. The sentiment is also a Marianne one and this was stamped onto a piece of card then cut out with the banner die, I used a blue inkpad though the openings of the die to also create the same effect as the mounted image.
I then created a background by using double sided stickyback paper and some large german glass glitter to create the snowy effect, and placed my mounted image in the center with the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner.
The final flourish are the 3 snowflakes which were punched out with a Martha Steward punch and placed around the mounted image.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
