"Let It Snow"

Having created a Christmas Canvas I decided to make a card where the stamped images used (other than phrase) are non traditional stamps to design a Christmas card. I used a Crafty Individual corner Stamp for 2 corners and to make a couple of rough snowflakes. The sentiment stamp is from Sizzix. All were inked in Silver and clear EP.

Onto a piece of card I sprayed a selection of perfect pearls, stamped the TH fairy and die cut using Nestabilities and a plain larger circle die for the outer circle to form my bauble. An old can pull to create the top of the bauble. Gesso with applied with a cocktail stick for snow. Snowflakes punches from white card to add more interest and finally silver ribbon tied in a bow.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges

What a brilliant non-traditional Christmas card Carol. First of all I just love the background to your image - a super idea and secondly the ring-pull for the top of your bauble is something else - a flicker of brilliance is what I'm thinking!!! I might borrow this one if you don't mind!!

Thank you for entering the Crafty Calendar (It's all about Christmas) challenge this month, lots of luck to you.
