Penny Black Saturday Challenge 6 - Snow Much Fun

And here is the last challenge I'll be entering for the week! And this one is for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge Number 6!

The challenge is:

Snow Much Fun
We would like you to make a Christmas card what features snow in some way,it can be papers, brads, embossing what ever you like as long as we can see snow and of course
at least one penny black image as always its entirely up to you what you make - card, atc, altered art etc..

I'd been mulling this one over all week as I'd already coloured the image with my watercolours but couldn't get the layout or background right. Anyway, I found the backing paper (which I think is actually posh wrapping paper!) in my stash and decided to use it. Added some little white eyelets through which the fluffy wool was threaded (stuck on the reverse with tape to stop them coming back through) and finally cut the word 'snow' using my Cuttlebug Baby Face alphabet.
I think the card is a bit flat which is a result of my wanting to use that particular image! Ah well, at least I know for next time! Sorry for wonky photo too!
