I just had to make this!..

How unseasonable can you get? The weather finally starts to get better, it's gorgeous here today- and I make a snow card!!
In my defence it was just one of those cards that fell together. Dutch Dare had an inspirational photo with turquoises and browns and I knew I had some digi paper somewhere in those colours- when I found it it was Summertime Designs 'Winter Wonderland' freebie- so the rest of the card went from there! The image is by Pollycraft and is a bargain at 49p at the moment. I coloured him with Promarkers and glittered the snow on the ground and some dots for falling snow. I also glittered the edges of the sentiment which was a freebie from Raindrop Echo at Sentimental Sundays from a while ago but they have a new set here each week. (I love that sentiment- I need to be more like that when it snows, I got grumpy with it this year and shovelled in a mood!) I gave in to my 'want it' for some Marianne snowflake dies and have used them to make the two unconventionally coloured snowflakes, which I finished with a gem each.
However, I have been really busy this week doing extra hours at work and only just got a photo, plus I had forgotten they are now weekly- which means that, after all that, I missed Dutch Dare! Never mind, because I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:-
