DT inspiration for Lil patch of crafty friends

It is the start of a new challenge over on the Lil' Patch of Crafty Friends challenge blog.
I have some inspiration for you using one of our wonderful sponsor for the challenge, Ching Chou Kuik.
She has kindly donated a prize of 3 of her fabulous images to a winner.
I have used her image Snowflake angel for my christmas card creation.
Here you can see my card closed

and here is the card opened and on display.

I used polychromos pencils to colour in the image and mounted it on kaisercraft, frost, cardstock. The patterned paper is 'baubles' from the kaisercraft Silver Bells collection. I love the paper as it is covered in silver tinsel and blue and pink baubles. 
The snowflakes are a tim holtz alterations die.
The 'Merry Christmas' sentiment is a clear polymer stamp from kaisercraft also. It was a Christmas stamp set from last year.
The card design is called an easel card. It is an easy card fold to make and quite effective too.
So I hope you have gained a bit of inspiration from my creation. Please join in the anything goes challenge on the Lil' Patch of Crafty Friends blog. Pop on over and have a look at all the other DT makes. They won't disappoint you :)
