I cut the shape with a Go-Kreate with several sizee and attached them together. I have used a circular one before but more difficult with a more intricate shape
Papers Basic Grey - Periphery and Granola.
I have used the image of Tilda in Tulle Skirt I and covered her with Distress inks and mounted her with magnolia snowflakes using White Color Box and Wow Embossing  powder and inked the border with Distress inks
I have use  Leaves by Magnolia Doohickey and a Martha Stewart Himalayan Snowflake with a Cherry Blossom as a center.



The middle one is Ink in silver Magnolia Swirl
and  Hero Art's Embossing powder in silver Magnolia Swirl


In the inner one is a Doily also treated with the magnolia snowflakes using White Color Box and Wow Embossing  powder and inked the border with Distress inks
Glittering is all with Doodlebug Sugar Coating
