Delicious Doodles Challenge #17

Good day everyone and Happy New Year!
I hope this finds you all well.
Today starts a new challenge at Delicious Doodles and we would like to see
 "Sparkle & Shine" on your projects.

I've used another wonderful scene drawn by Teri called "Snowy Postbox" and it can be found here.
Diamond Dust has been used on the snow and the image is mounted on bluish silver mirror cardstock from a 2011 MS Christmas paper pad.   Circles cut with Spellbinders dies.  
 Image coloured with Copics.

I created this card for a dear Aunt who will be celebrating her 90th Birthday this month.  She was born in England so I thought the mailbox would remind her of home.  She is a talented artist and as a child I was always in awe of her beautiful drawings.

I hope to enter the following challenges:
Nutcrafters Challenge #33 - Lots of layers, sparkle & Bling
Cards Galore Challenge - January AG
Crafts and Me Challenge - Winter Wonderland
Divas by Design - Ch#66 AG
Inky Impressions Challenge - #91 AG
The Stamping Chef Challenge - Celebrations

Thanks for dropping by.
