Ponies in the snow

Today I'm shearing this little snowy card with you. I created the snowy scene by masking the card with torn paper and inking it in Chateux grey versa ink. With the mask still in place I added in the line of trees and the sunset in camellia and canary versa ink. I stamped Lavinia stamps pony duo in the fore ground then set about crafting the wreath. This is actually the sizzix 'autumn gatherings' die but I thought if I cut them all out in white they would have a wintery look. To some leaves I added silver ink, and to others I added more of the grey. I punched a couple of flowers with woodware punches. The whole lot is stuck on with 3d foam mounts. Finally (because I can't make a card without it) I added silver stickles to some of the leaves.

This card has been designed with the following challenges in mind;
My time to craft let it snow
The craft barn snowflakes (not technically snow 'flakes' but you can't get snow without the flakes, right?!
Stamping sensations- festive foliage and flowers
Little Claire's Christmas in white
Simon Wednesday- Christmas
