Challenge 154 at Pattie's Creations Design Challenge

Happy New Year Everyone!
We have  new challenge over at Pattie's Creations and the theme is SNOWY DAYS/NIGHTS
I chose to make a snowy night scene on my creation.

I decided to make a new Tissue Box Cover for the Winter and chose my image called "Snow Birds Birdhouse". You can purchase it by clicking on the name and it will take you to my Etsy Store.
I colored my image using Photoshop and added some Stickles Glitter to the snow. I used chipboard for the tissue box cover and added plaid paper that I made in Photoshop.
If you would like to make a tissue box cover just follow my tutorial below.
