CHNC challenge 233: snow in June

For my CHNC challenge 233 this week I'd like to see some snow in June.

One of the four sponsors is Sweet Pea Stamps and I used the lovely Conie Fong's snowy the penguin dancing in the snow digi, kindly supplied by them. I coloured this digitally using Microsoft Paint.

I mounted the image on to a black card blnk, cutting off the right hand piece and replacing with some snowy acetate, wrapping ribbon around to conceal the adhesive. I then used pieces of the ribbon threaded through the sentiment pice and added some ribbed snowflakes (ribbon and snowflakes from Hobbycraft).

It's always difficult to get decent photos when acetate is involved, so this is the best I could do.

I stuck a tag with ribbon and snowflakes placed so that the embellishments on the front didn't show through.

This is also for:
