Digistamps4Joy Challenge #56: Baby it's cold outside!

It's actually so ironic that although the challenge #56 for Digistamps4Joy is about "cold" and probably aimed at our Northern hemisphere friends, it's actually COLD and RAINING here today as I'm writing this post! This is indeed very strange weather for us here in Johannesburg in December.

This bi-weekly challenge is not only about "cold" but is also a RECIPE CHALLENGE!
1 Image + 2 Designer papers + 3 Snowflakes!

I made this card using a popular DS4J image: Juvenile Trio
I created some "snow" on the branch by making a line with a grey Spectrum Noir Marker and filling the gap with Stickles.
This was quite a challenge since I've got NOTHING 'snowy' nor snowflakes in my stash :D. The "snowflakes" are from a flower punch and I just trimmed 2 of the 'flakes' ends into different points.
DP is from We-R-Memory Keepers.
