Dreaming of a white Christmas

Dreaming of a white Christmas

I'd like to enter this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: let it snow with Art Impressessions
and the Sparkle and Shine Challenge #19.

For my card I used the Art Impressions stamp: zoocrew feline set for the cat, Cas-ual Fridays stampset must love snowflakes for the sentiment and snowflakes.
I've used the dies from Craft emotions, snow crystal and (PPP) sequins in silver and purple.

From the inspiration photo: Bed=sleeping=dreaming+snowflakes=dreaming of a white Christmas...(little insight into how my brain works ;-) )
the embossing powder is from Papermania superfine silver and the  image is colored with my Spectrm Noir markers stamped on Neenah classic crest cardstock with Memento tuxedo black ink.

I Started by stamping the sentiment, get that over with and  have it safe, so it can't mess up my card afterwards ;-) 
Then I stamped the lazy cat, not really sleeping, but he could still be dreaming (of tuna).
Then I used Versamark for  some snowflakes and heat embossed them.
In the inspiration photo I see a a lot of layered snowflakes, a bed (hence the dreaming) and purple bedding, so I figured my cat is sleeping on my purple bed. Mine like to sleep upside down like that btw, yours too?

Anyway the other snowflakes were diecut from lilac, purple and white glitter paper and stuck on as if it were snowing, which is weird if the cat is on the bed....ah well...the size of these snowflakes would also crush him.. they're the  white snow he's dreaming of ;-)...yes that's my angle lol...

I mounted the panel on a cardbase with taperunner.
