Guest Designer at Indigoblu.....for LET IT SNOW

YES... I was asked to be a guest designer at Indigoblu...
as inspiration for their challenge, LET IT SNOW

Being chosen as 1 of the top3, is of course, an inspiration to keep going on my art journey, and enjoy crafting. I have been joining in the Indigoblu challenge lots of times, and always hoped to be chosen, and then suddenly it happens with a card I'm not really happy with,  LOL 
Then the theme was a bit of a struggle... having only flowers, a butterfly and bubbles stamps from Indigoblu... and the theme being LET IT SNOW... I had to put my thinking caps on..
I thought of the saying "snowflakes are the flowers of winter... ", 

I started with a beautiful shimmery scrapbookpaper with lots of white snowflakes on it. 
I sponged it with Distress inks to make the snowflakes pop. 
From a leftover piece I cut a few snowflakes to adhere it to the card later on. 
I chose to keep the flowers not that intense with color, so it became part of the background. 
They were adhered to the card with 3D glue. 
I also added some 'Crystal Ice' ICE Stickles to the centres of the flowers and snowflakes. 
 Pity you can't see all the glamour and bling going on on this card.  

I am entering this in the following challenge:
1. Indigoblu - let it snow.
2. Simon says Stamp - wednesday challenge - bling it on
3. TIOT - winter whites
4. Stampotique designers challenge  - SDC 176 anything goes
