Totally Tilda's Christmas Decoration in July

Hi peeps, now you know me, know I don't do Christmas before November then I get a couple of my DT's  that want just that lol,

 The Totally Tilda challenge  is for a Christmas  hanging decoration so no cards please,

The globe is two acetate domes which on  the back one  I painted with white acrylic paint then while still wet  I applied Glamour dust too, 
I coloured Skiing Tilda with copics, cut her out ( carefully those ski's are a nightmare lol) then also cut two quickcutz die  snowflakes out, these were given the glamour dust treatment too,
Is it just me or does it get everywhere!!
I attached acetate  tabs to all the images and then adhered them to the back acetate dome, this wasn't easy as the glue didn't like the surface very well lol,
I added a bit of loose Pinflair Diamond glitter to the base of my globe for mock snow which also moves when shaken,
I then glued the two domes together added a large Sissix die snowflakes which I cut in half added some lovely ribbon and job done lol

I also forgot how hard acetate is to photograph as it catches the light, so I do hope you can see it ok lol,
