Winter Wonderland-Sketch Challenge SOUS

Hello fellow scrappers!! 
 Its another sketch reveal for us girls over at S.O.US and this weeks sketch was designed by me..  Although, its focused on Halloween, I decided to make a winter layout with it instead.. Here in Finland we dont' really celebrate Halloween as I've said before, so I decided to play with my Imagine and the Mr.Frosty background cartridge that I got as a gift from Margie.. She was such a sweety for sharing it with me.. 

Here is the sketch:

so, here is my take on our sketch:

I had so much fun playing with methods and techniques I haven't done in a long time.. 
The prints and colors ( I love pink) are all printed on white cardstock using the Mr.Frosty background cartridge..
I did some heat embossing on the stamped flourish as well..
 love that technique, one of my all time fav's..

How about a few close ups and some details:
The title is from the Winter Woodland cartridge as are the birds..
I cut the shadow in a light tan and then the basic image in cream.. I've inked all of the edges of the shadow cuts with a light brown ink.. Added a bunch of pearl drops with liquid pearls and then added some faux snow using Snow Tex.

The deer and trees are on the Christmas cartridge, the little bunny is on the Winter Woodland cartridge.. I used a martha stewart edge punch for the trim around the marquee and the little strip on the photo mat.. added faux snow to the trees and lamp post using Snow Tex.

I love how the snow effect gave this layout a great winter feel.. The lamp post is on the Christmas cartridge..
The pink snow flake background paper can be found on the Imagines Mr.Frosty cartridge..

All of the little white roses are prima and the twigs are a Martha Stewart punch.. I added some white liquid pearls to the centers of the tiny roses for some shimmer.. They look great in person!!
