Winter wonderland with a sprinkle of sugar!!

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.The builders have nearly finished my wall but am not impressed that is not as tall as the old one which means i will probably need to put some trellis up to get some privacy from people walking past.
One good thing is the window fitter failed to show up so it was quiet.
I am off to work in a mo but first a card to share which i am entering into the following challenges:
1.Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch 219
2.Diva`s by Design Challenge - Christmas is August
3.CRAFT Challenge - Challenge 220 - Christmas
Products used are:
White card
First Edition papers - Nordic Christmas
Memory box snowflake border
Red ribbon
Glass jar
Wooden snowflake painted white and glittered
Gems 
Distress tool
Bugaboo image - Sunbonnett winter image 2
Pro/Flexmarkers
Stickles stardust
Snowtex
The little jar i wanted to look like it contained snow but i did not want to pour that much of my glamour dust glitter in so i used 2 teaspoons of sugar and 1 teaspoon of glamour dust so it still sparkles.

Pro/Flexmarkers used are:
Red, berry, crimson,burgandy, cool grey 5
Tea green, pebble blue, grey green, blue lake
Soft aqua, cloud, blender

And a sideways view.
Thanks so much for popping by, means a lot :D
Hugs Nic.xx

Hi Nic

Beautiful card, I love your layout and beautiful image.
Builders never do everything you want. At least you have a wall and not a fence that could fall down in the wind.
Have a nice weekend
