LOTV Christmas in July

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with a Christmas in July project for the challenge at Lili of the Valley using one of my favourite stamps from last year. I coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, then used Deco art glitter on the snow so it sparkles in the light. I then placed this on a brown card stock mat cut with the next size up nestie I used for the image. I then used Bo Bunny Snowfall papers for my base and as a border. I love these papers and the swirls in the background paper were perfect for this image. I then used Card Candy as embellishments and a 'Let it Snow' peel off. I dont usually use these but I like these ones and they go well with the tones in the papers.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Lili's Little Fairies: Christmas in July
2 Sisters: Christmas in July
Sweet Stampin': Christmas in July
Waste not Wednesday: Use your forgotten stash
