You are snow cute

Hey again! This is my second post today. I'm trying to get my posts caught up since I'm a little behind in posting my newest layouts. I'm sorry about that and so grateful you are baring with me. This is a layout that I've done for the "Layer it up" challenge in the Flying Unicorn forums. The challenge being to use a minimum of six layers with the final layer being on top of the photo.
 A lot of layers and techniques on this page. I started by distressing all my layers with my Zutter distressing tool.  I've stamped a few random snowflakes on the background in Stazon Lavender. Masked snowflakes using Snow Tex as well as applying it randomly on the background. I love the texture it gives. While the Snow Tex was still wet I sprinkled it with Stampendous iridescent ultra fine glitter. I also did the same with the larger white chipboard snowflakes. This layout really sparkles irl. I wish that my photos were better, but it pouring down the rain here today and it's very gloomy so the lighting isn't good at all. I may have to come back and edit the photos the next sunny day we have. Anyway, I colored the lace by misting it with Tattered Angels "Popcicle" glimmer mist, then spritzed the background while I was at it.
 The Dusty Attic chipboard snowflakes were inked with the Stazon Lavender then heat embossed with clear iridescent embossing powder.
 For the final layer I masked a snowflake in the top right corner of the photo as well as overlapped the lower right corner with my cluster.
Thanks again! I really appreciate you!
