More mixed media challenge - option: white

This is my design card for More mixed media challenge with the option of using white. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs by others in the team and we hope you will join in the challenge.

I used pearl alcohol ink on blue mirror card, stamping snowflakes and sentiment inked with Elzybell's sugar candy and heat embossing with detail white powder, with snowflakes and pearls added.

I'm showing two photos, neither of which give the design justice - it's obviously difficult because of the shine on the mirror card, but disappointing that the pearl alcohol ink doesn't show up here as well as irl.
