Lavender and Lace Christmas

Good morning everyone - I'm back today with another of my weekend makes. Today's card has been primarily inspired by the Ribbon Girl Colour Challenge of shades of lavender - ooh I do love lavender, lilac and purple, and I managed to find some really pretty Chrimbo paper in my stash to suit :-).  I also managed to incorporate my gorgeous new Whimsy Snowflake die - I've been looking for a new snowflake die for ages and this one is just sooo pretty!

Stamps: LotV "Shine A Light" and "Grungy Christmas messages":
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers, LOTS of glamour dust :-) ;
Papers: Crafter's Companion "The Snowman";
Supplies: pure silk ribbons from The Ribbon Box; pearls, gems and large pearl brad from The Hobby House; charm from Bunny Zoe's Crafts; sparkly lace from my stash;
Tools: Whiumsy Snowflake die; Martha Stewart snowflake punch.
