I used some of my hand dyed satin for the sky. Satin dyes well and gives a shimmer to my skies. The snow is a heavy organza and hand stitched to the base. It is easy to manipulate with needle and thread. The tree, which is made from burlap, is also hand stitched to the background. I used Sulky Opalescent Sliver thread to tack down the branches. The tiny stitches sparkle like bits of ice on them.
The mat (just laid in place) is suppose to be a bright white. I usually use a black metal frame that is custom made to fit my pieces.
