Winter Snow - The Outlawz Greeting Challenge

Hello, Crafty Peeps,
If it's Monday, then it must be The Outlawz Greetings Challenge!  This week we are featuring a new sponsor, Oak Pond Creations and the team is excited to work with her wonderful creations.

One of our designers became ill, so I decided to create a project using the image she was supposed to use.  I had fun designing this and I hope you like it.

I do believe I got a little carried away with the silver rub and buff, so my blades are a little big!
  How's that for an oxymoron?  This OPC image is adorable.
  I printed it on vellum and then colored the backside of the image with TH Distress Ink.  
For the cuffs and puff balls, I used TH Picket Fence Distress Stain. 
The blades were colored with Rub 'n Buff Silver Leaf.
I discovered this wonderful paper in my hoard of "never opened" 6x6 pads!  I do not exaggerate when I say I have hundreds and most of them have never been touched.  This one is A Prima Pad.
I love that Prima gives you lots of sheets (48- 3 single sided sheets of 16 different designs.)
 Also, during my "trolling," I discovered this wonderful bling border and I thought it would be the perfect "Icy" component of my Wintry design!  I used Liquid Pearls to amplify some of the snow!
Initially, I was going to use this paper on the front, but it really works so much better here!
