Whimsical Wednesday Card reveal

I think I'm getting the hang of this card making thing..LOL
I had some of these free papers that come with one of the scrapbook magazines I order from the UK and when I seen the colors, they were awesome.. soft blues, creams and browns..
I then opened up my DS software and started looking around for some cute Winter quotes and found this one on Winter Frolic cartridge, then the mittens and scarf came to play from the Winter Woodland cartridge and the topnote from the Sentimentals cartridge.. I did use my Imagine again and the Loris' Garden cartridge for the soft colors.. The light blues, creams and browns..
I wasn't able to use the DS directly with the Imagine, but since I knew what size cuts I needed, it was a cinch to use the Imagine.
so, here is my card for our challenge:

I did a lot of different things on this layout, for one... I heat embossed the very edges using Winter Wonderland embossing powder.. its got a little sparkle to it, makes it almost look like a frosty window..LOL used my MS snow flake punch and punched the snow flakes, popdotted all of the images and then I had a glittered snow writer pen thingy, which I added that onto the tops of the letters, hoping it would dry white, but it ended up drying kind of clear.. go figure!! LOL  aaaaaand everything is inked with distress inks..
 care for a few close ups:
