I'm back!!!! with a Glitter Card

Hi everyone, it's only been a couple of days but I have missed checking out all your creations. Our modem decided it had had enough on Monday and finally yesterday arvo after buying a new modem I managed to get back online. Yay! Next challenge is to find someone to get rid of the bug we have.

I have been busy creating a couple of things in my time offline. One, is this card. I have finally got an entry for the Bizzy Becs Creatalicious Challenge #4. Every other month, I think I have a whole month to do this and then forget. The challenge was to create something for Christmas, include snowflakes and lots of sparkle/glitter.

So I have used SU Brocade Blue for the base card. White pearlescant paper that I have run through the cuttlebug with my Swiss Dots folder. I am not sure where I found this free digital image sorry. I printed her on white card and coloured her with my aqua pen and watercolour pencils. Added some Peacock embossing powder with PVA glue but didn't heat emboss as I like the fluffy look it has. Then put some double sided tape around all the edges of my image, took off the protective covering of the double sided tape and sprinkled red glitter all over. Added some sparkly snowflake buttons that I bought from Blue Edge Crafts and a Letraset gold rub on 'Let it Snow'.

I have some exciting news that has happened in those couple of days offline. I was picked in the Top Three for last weeks Pick Three Challenge. Thanks so much Denise, can't wait to try out this weeks challenge.

I have also won a prize from over at the amazing Jak Heath's Blog Crafter's Kitchen. Jak has two wonderful image available for 4 pounds each. The donation goes to raising funds for research into Meningitis to which she sadly lost her 16 month old great nephew. Jak generously started up a giveaway that you could enter with a creation using one of these wonderful images. I was so lucky to win. I thought I was winning one Flippin Christmas Die Cut but went back and reread the prize this morning and discovered it is the whole set of Flippin Christmas Die Cuts. How fantastic is that. I have always wanted to have a go at one of these Flippin designs as they look like so much fun.
