Cottage Snow Globe

Hi all

One of my recent purchases is this Snow Globe die from from Find It Trading

 I cut the Find it Snow Globe die out of a great card from LimeTree crafts called White Topaz - I really like this cardstock  and have used it a lot for my Christmas cards this year. It takes ink great even though it is pearlised. 
With this card I shaded the globe with TH distress oxide Tumbled Glass with a hint of a darker blue. 
Once the ink was dry I stamped the cottage and added glitter to the image to create a snowy feel. I added some snow to the sky by picking up some white acrylic paint with my pokey tool and dabbed it on the image. 
To create the background I used a Woodware snowflake stamp using the same blue ink.
I die cut and embossed the sentiment out of sky blue card and embossed it with clear embossing powder.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
