Bright Snowflake Card And May I Ask A Favor?

Hello there! Before I talk about my card, I wonder if I can ask a favor. A while back I entered a contest to win a free trip to a brand new resort in the Caribbean. I'm losing badly. To enter I uploaded a photo to the resort's Facebook page and now I need to get as many people to "like" my photo as possible. They are trying to get exposure to their new resort, so this is about generating "likes" for their page.

Here is a link to their page on Facebook. If you would like to help me, just "like" their page, then follow this link to see my photo. It may take a minute for the page to load, but when it does, there will be a place on the photo to click "like." Today is the last day to vote.

Here is what my photo looks like. Thank you so much for even considering! I truly appreciate it.

And now a bit about my card! I used the big snowflake from Let It Snow, along with some Spellbinders® die templates and my fab Faber-Castell® big white pen. Here is the video and you can scroll down for step by step photos.

To begin, cut and emboss Spellbinders® Labels Thirty-two #5 (with #1 being the smallest die template) from white cardstock. Then sponge Memento Summer Sky ink along the bottom.

Sponge Memento Bahama Blue ink from the top until you reach the lighter blue ink at the bottom.

Sponge Memento Teal Zeal ink on the upper portion.

And sponge Memento Nautical Blue ink at the very top.

Remove from the die template and stamp the snowflake, from Let It Snow, using VersaMark ink, then heat emboss with white embossing powder.

Use a C5 Copic marker to add a shadow on the left parts of the image. Then use a C3 Copic to add more shading all the way around the image. Sorry I missed snapping a photo for the second marker. 

Use a Faber-Castel White Pitt Artist Pen, or another opaque white gel pen, to add dots all around the background.

Create a 4 ¼ by 5 ½ inch In The Navy card base. Position an A2 Matting Basics A die template over the card base and secure with low tack tape. Use the die template as a guide to draw a frame using the big white pen.

Move the tape to the inside of the die template and draw a frame around the outside of the die template.

Adhere the snowflake layer to the card base using dimensional foam squares. Stamp the sentiment, also from Let it Snow, on a narrow strip of white cardstock and adhere using foam squares. Add a small gem to the center of the snowflake.

Thank you so much for your time. I hope you have a marvelous day!
