Holiday Snow Glow

I saw a card by Karin Akesdotter (BTW, she's amazing!) and knew I wanted to try to create my own take with goodies I have on hand.  The step by step was clear in my head, but executing it was an entirely different deal.  I just learned a new word from one of my TTT teamies, numpty...this is exactly how I felt.  I kept messing stuff up, things as ridiculous as cutting my "snow" and using it instead of a mask when I did the sky.  I could go on and on with the numpty things I did before ending up with this:

I do have to say, I am happy with the way it turned out.  I am entering it in the following challenges:
