Brrr - it's cold out here Mum!

Hi everyone,

I thought I would post another of my Cupcakecrafting DT cards today as it is topical. Our snow is just about going but I understand there's more on the way. My son is up in Newcastle and is due back tomorrow. Thank goodness he's gone on the train and not having to drive in it all.

The lady in my image is dressed for the weather and her and her little dog seem to be enjoying it (apart from the heels on her boots, I think wellies might be more appropriate!!)
The card is a 7x10. I used black and red cardstock to mat and layer onto. On the bottom piece of black card, I covered this with red Spiders Web netting from Club Green to give it extra texture.
The image is taken from 'A Touch of Elegance' from Cupcakecrafting. I used paper from my stash to make the poinsettia which I cut using Spellbinder dies and my Bigshot. I distressed the leaves and petals with Tim Holtz's distress ink - Peeled Paint to make it less shiny. I fixed the poinsettia to the bottom right hand corner of the topper with Pinflair.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
