A snowy 'Shadow Box' card

Good morning!
Wow - what a night! I was at the hospital until 2.30am this morning with my oldest son - I'm a little wiped to say the least! Thankfully he is fine now but there were moments that we thought he would need emergency surgery (a testicular torsion) - very ouch!!
Anyhow, onto my card. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this card. I finally got my little inky mitts on these gorgeous Magnolia snowmen and they are stunning beyond words! This is the second card that I'll be teaching at Heather's on December 12th. I've used a new christmas/winter cuttlebug embossing folder (trees) for the aqua background panel. Snowy is coloured with Tombow markers and I used Twinklets on the snowflake. The front panel is embossed with the snowflake folder and the snowflakes I've added in silver are spellbinders. The sentiment is from The Stamp Barn. I've added a white diamond gem on each snowflake for extra sparkle. The ribbon is from stash.
Well, thanks for coming by today and paying me a visit. I think I will be taking a siesta at some point today to catch up on a little bit of sleep! If you're visiting from in and around the Ottawa area and would like to take this class, please check Heather's calendar and sign up - I'd love to have you in my class!
I hope you all enjoy a beautiful day! Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments you leave! A very HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all my American friends today - I hope you enjoy a wonderful holiday with family and friends!
Hugs,
Danielle x

Love your card, Danielle, it's very pretty and cute too! That kind of card is called a 'Shadow box card', I believe.

Sorry to hear about your son last night. Ouch! I hope he's all better today.

All of the Magnolia snowmen are cute but I have to say this one is my all time favorite. You've done a beautiful coloring job and I love the colors, embossing and embellishments. A fantastic card, Danielle.
Glad to hear your son is going to be okay.
God Bless!
