Allsorts Challenge 19

Morning Folks.....time to share my card for this week's challenge over at Allsorts.....which is


Papers: Fancy Pants....Christmas Magic Collection
Snowflake: Cuttlebug Die
Images: Basic Grey...Itsy Bitsy Stamps....Granola Collection
Hero Arts: Snowflakes
Sentiment: Hero Arts
Snowflake Charms...button and silver cord from stash
Decoart Glamour Dust

Snowflakes are definitely one of my favourite Christmas Elements and I love this Cuttlebug Die.......I think it was definitely money well spent....I will be using it over and over again....probably until you are sick fed up of seeing it.     And I love to create my own background papers.....this is a gorgeous colour wash paper but I wanted to introduce the butterfly stamped the butterfly image (second impression...for any of you starting out stampers....that means that you ink your stamp and stamp onto scrap paper and then without reinking......stamp the image onto the background creating a faded impression.....I didn't want it to be too bright and in your face...then stamped this gorgeous little snowflake image from Hero Arts...the journalling block and sentiment all with Tim Holtz Distress Ink....Aged Mahogany.  Finished off by giving the snowflakes a generous dusting of the old Glamour Dust.
Catch up with you all tomorrow for sneaky peek Thursday.
