Loads of Quirky Snow and Layers!

New Challenge has started over on the Quirky Crafts Challenge blog. It's my turn to set the theme and I want to see you......
"Layer it Up and Let It Snow!"
So, just use lots of layers in any way you'd like but!! Don't forget to add some snow!! Easy!
Here's my card, which took a fortnight to make (I'm sooo slow!) I've made it 8x8 by joining two bits of green card together, then adding, red card, silver miri card, patterned paper and then a topper of silver miri card, patterned paper and the digi printed out over my own 'Snowy Sky' back ground. You'll  find it HERE. The two digi's I've used are by Dustin Pike's Doodle Dragon who is one of our sponsors this time round, along with the Cutting Cafe and Crafty Ribbons!! 
I've played with the digi's in My Craft Studio (as Word was being a pain!) and moved them about so it looks as though Monkey is helping Dudley build a snowman. There's about three or four layers on the topper after cutting off bits of ear, nostril, leg, body, tail, and bobbles from their hats!
The backing papers on the front are by Papermania, 'Home for Christmas' 6x6 nice and thick at a 180gsm, there's ribbon to match. I bought mine half price from Trago Mills when we were down in Cornwall. The papers on the inside had to be a bit bigger so I've used 8x8 Joyeux Noel also by PaperMania, @ 160gsm.
 The font is a freebie, it's called  One Starry Night and you can find that HERE  I printed it in WordArt, and filled in with red, with a slightly darker red outline, but I doubt you can see that.
The 'Merry' was from a set of blank grey cardboard letters, which I've never used coz there's never the right about of letters in the packet!  Luckily there was one Y and two R's!  I coloured them with a Poppy Red Promarker, smeared with clear embossing ink, dipped into clear embossing powder and zapped with my heat gun, then fixed to the card with silicon glue with added Stickles glitter. The embossed snow flakes behind the letters I made using a snowflake embosser free from a crafty magazine! And I rather like it! (wish it was a bit longer)
 The big silver snowflake I think came from a Let's Make Cards Mag, the only one I bought, many years ago. I've finished with silver peel off snowflakes, and added black and Icicle Stickles Glitter. The die-cut 'Snowflake' corner is by Memory Box. Phew, think that's covered it!
Sorry if there's different sized lettering...blogger seems to type everything in 'small' even though I've told it to write in 'normal'...and I've had to go into the Html and type in 'normal' a trillion times!!Thanks you for stopping by! Hoping to add a few...
