Digital Tuesday DT- Dazzling Diamonds

Time for another challenge over at Digital Tuesday and Michelle R is our hostess this week.
Michelle lives in Florida so lucky for her she doesn't get the cold snow that most of us do, but her Daughter would love for it to snow, so Michelle's challenge this week is for her Daughter. She wants us to use Dazzling Diamonds to make a Winter scene.
Our sponsor this week is Soft Pencil and Elizabeth is offering this weeks winner a $15 gift certificate to spend in her store. She also very kindly gave the DT some images to use for the challenge and she also made a card especially for the challenge, so do pop over to the challenge blog to check out all the eye candy, her images are just the sweetest.

Right onto my card, I could of just took a photo of outside and the challenge would of been covered because it's still snowing here lol, but I did make a card. I must confess though that this is my second card for this challenge because I made one nearly 2 weeks ago then gave it away on Christmas Day and had forgotten to take a pic lol. So here is my 2nd attempt.

I finished this card at about 10pm last night so there wasn't much light, which means another pants pic (I really must remember to take my pics when there if daylight), but you can still see the cute image and the Dazzling Diamonds.
The base paper is Stampin Up and the other one I used as a mat is by Sandylion. It has large embossed snowflakes which you can't see because I stuck my image on top lol.
The image is from Soft Pencils Winter collection and I coloured it with Copics as usual. I don't have much colours that work just now so just had to use the colours that worked, then I used a glue pen to colour over the roof and ground, sprinkled with Stampin Up heat and stick powder then added the dazzling diamonds glitter.
The lace and flowers are ones from my stash and the swirls were made with an All Night Media punch which I also covered in dazzling diamonds (not the punch itself, just the punched swirls lol).

I hope lots of you will join in this week as it is a fab prize. I know I would love to win a $15 gift certificate to spend on Elizabeths gorgeous images.
I can't wait to see what you make, and I promise I will come look at very entry this week. I must apologise for my lack of commenting on entries over the last few weeks. Life has been so busy and I just haven't had the chance to comment as much as I would like, but now that Christmas is over, I should be back to normal :)
