Snowflakes with Sparkles Christmas Challenges

Hi everyone

It's time for a new challenge over at Sparkles Christmas Challenges

This month our theme is Snowflakes.

Here's my little piece of inspiration...

I've used an embossing folder directly onto the card blank on the left hand side as you look at it. I've stamped using silver detail embossing powder and cut it out using a Spellbinder die, layering the sentiment on foam pads. I've also added a die cut to the corner and finished off with some ribbon and a bow from my stash. This isn't my usual style but I wanted to try something different. I'm really pleased with the result. I hope you'll pop over to the challenge and take a look at the awesome inspiration from my very talented team mates. I hope you'll also join us in the challenge. There's a fab prize up for grabs from Di's Digi Downloads.

Thanks for visiting. Sorry I haven't been around much in the last couple of weeks. I injured my shoulder in August of last year and it's still giving me grief, along with my back. I finally plucked up the courage to go to see a physio last week and had some acupuncture needles inserted into my shoulder and an electric current put through it. As a result it's been more sore than before but I knew it would get worse before it starts to get better. He hasn't started on my back yet as he didn't want to overload my system on my first visit...I also suffer with fibromyalgia, but I have another session tomorrow. He's mentioned pilates so that could be fun. Anyhow I'll keep crafting while I can and hope to see you again soon.

Happy crafting
