Snow in this heat?

Yes it is quite a challenge to make a snowy Christmas card in this heat, but then again it is refreshing to think of the snow when it has been so hot.  The last two days in Birmingham have been a LOT cooler though.  I wonder what this week will bring....  I'm not sure that the weather forecasters know yet- they keep changing their minds, don't they?
Anyway, I made this card today with the following challenges in mind- Ready Teddy Go (photo inspiration), Sweet Sketch Wednesday (sketch), I love Promarkers (anything goes), Passion for Promarkers (make a scene round the image) and Digi Sketch Challenge (theme- layers).
