Let it snow....

Well hello all you Sundae bloggers and ....normal service again with my scheduled post and yes you guessed it...back to work!! The challenge this week over at Paper Sundaes is "Let it Snow"...I just love that theme...snowflakes and snow and pretty!!

Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Stamp & Create and the lovely prize for one lucky person is a $15 to use in their store...woo hoo!!. For my card this week I have used papers from October Afternoon and Scenic Route. I distressed the edges of the card on each of the layers as I made a bit of a boob when stitching..totally covered up now...I am getting to be a dab hand at the patch up jobs!!I also embossed the circle with a snowflake embossing folder. The image is Penelope from CC Designs...Stamp & Create lots of CC Designs stamps. I coloured Penelope with copics.The snowflake has been punched with the Martha Stewart Scandanvian Snowflake it!! I stuck a jumbo gem in the middle for some extra glitz and I added some glitter to finish off....I am quite chuffed with this one.
