Guylou's Inimitability - Weather

Hi there!  Happy Friday!  I hope you had a good week and you've got fun plans for the weekend!  It's very early on Friday, but I'm here to share my DT card for the new challenge at Guylou's Inimitability.  Trina is our "hostess with the mostest" for the challenge and the theme is "weather".  Anything weather-related will work for this one.

Here are the challenge details:
Challenge Deadline:
You have until 10:00 PM (EDT) on October 4th to link your project to the Inlinkz at the end of the challenge post.
How to participate:
You may enter only ONE project per challenge, but if you use a Guylou's Inimitability digistamp, your project will count for two entries.  If you don't have one of Guylou's digistamps, you can check the online store where several freebies are available.  
Challenge Prizes:
A winner will be selected randomly and will win:
1. A $10.00 gift certificate from Guylou's online store
2. An invitation to be a Guest Designer on one of our upcoming challenges
Our Guest Designer for this challenge is: Lorianna
Lorianna was the winner of our recent Pearls and Swirls challenge and was invited to join us this week. Check out her beautiful project on Guylou's Inimitability Blog.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU chocolate Chip.  The patterned papers are from the Bo Bunny Snowfall 6x6 pad.  My fun image is Cat In The Snow from Guylou's Inimitability.  You can find it Guylou's store here.  I printed it on Neenah Solar White and colored it with my Copics.  I sponged the sky with SU Soft Sky.  I added tons of Stampendous Snow Glitter to the snow and Star Dust Stickles to the little falling flakes.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  It is part of the Enjoy The Snow set in Paulette's store here.  A couple of iridescent blue snowflakes finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:

I am also entering my card in Sketch Saturday #225.
