Brrr - Snow - Always an unexpected pleasure

Good morning scrappers - hope its not too snowy and cold where you are.
These are the pictures of us in the snow last week.
For this layout I have used a sketch from Sketchabilities for my inspiration.

 I found some brilliant snowy background paper that really showed what kind of day it was.
I then chose my background colours, which I kept quite monochromatic and went from there.
Here is what I did.
First I adhered my photos onto some white cardstock and drew a line around them  using a ruler.
I cut this out and adhered to some dark green cardstock and did the same.
I then drew around a template and cut out the bracket style border. I  matted  this onto dark green card.
I glued this down and attached my photos.
I  added a one inch strip of cardstock on either side and added two  peices of bunting to which I added some pearls.
I added some more bunting in green and white.
I took some texture/ modelling paste, and added  snowy white edges with a paint brush.
I added my flowers and title and two small doillies.
I then finished off with the journalling banner at the bottom, the date and three small rose buds.
I added some texture paste to the flowers and leaves as well. I hope you like it, see sketch below.
