A Spoon Full of Sugary Lili of the Valley; posy number 3

I love these Lili of the Valley pre-coloured images which come in squares.  They have a blog hop this week but I'm not entering these cards there, I have another set coming.    I cut this image as an oval with my nestie and backed them with some DCWV paper and some pearlescent card.  I added a cut-down Fiskars sentiment and three MS punched snowflakes - "snow/snowflakes" is the theme at this week's Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge.
I had soooo much trouble with my snowflakes.  I have several cuts in my Cricut cartridges but I just couldn't get a good one.  The paper was too thin (use a different one), the card stock was to thick (use a different one), I changed the blade and the mat, tried different cuts and nothing worked so then I opted to use an MS snowflake punch with acetate but I kept losing the punches on the carpet and I couldn't glitter them up and they were too thin and arrrrhhhhhhhh!

I got there in the end although my silver snowflake looks blue in these rather unsatisfactory photos.  I stickled the lilac snowflake and added some gems (from Quixotic Paperie) to all of the centres.  A ribbon and a handmade bow (using my Bow Easy - also from Elaine at Quixotic) and a bit of stickles on the furry bits of the image and voila - 5 more cards in the bag!
