The Paper Shelter Challenge #330 Hot or Cold Colours

Good Morning and welcome to my post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week the challenge is for you to use either hot or cold colours. I chose to use cold colours and made a Christmas card. I know, crazy right? I should be making Easter cards or something, but I did plan on making at least 1 Christmas card every month, so I had a small collection ready for next Christmas, but I have only made 1 so far, way back in January! This challenge was a great way for me to add another to the box!

I used the adorable Snowflakes image and went with a lilac, green and blue combo with lots of added glitter and Frantage to add to the snowy effect. Looks very cold and icy there!
