Snowy Postcard...

Well I'm a day late with my Sweet Stampin post!

What a week I have had, to start off with was a bit under the weather, then Thursday into Friday my heating and hot water packed in...jeezo it's baltic!  The gasman was here yesterday but needed to order a circuit board...he's coming back tomorrow to fit it....keep your fingers crossed for me to have hot water and heating tomorrow!!

So this weeks challenge theme is "to die for" do I love my dies so perfect theme for me!

We're sponsored by the fabulous Yours or Mine Papercrafts:

Who are offering a super duper $10 voucher to the store!

So for my card I used distress inks to colour the image and the backing.  First I stamped the stamp twice onto white card stock and cut out the centre oval, I then inked both of these up and then layered them together.  The backing was also inked up and also used cardio stamps to randomly stamp around the edges as I felt it needed something other than just the ink.  The snowflakes are from my die-namics Let it Snowflake set (love them) and the tiny poinsettia die is from poppy stamps.  I also added a bit of ink to the die cuts too.  I added an organza bow and and I made and organza rose for the centre...I added pearls to the centres of the snowflakes and to the corners of the layers....finished with loads of glitter....hope you likey!

That's so beautiful Fi! I love the layering and the extra stamping on the background. That lil' poinsettia is gorgeous as is your organza rose. Gorgeous card. Hugs, Wends x P.S. I hope your heating is sorted soon. It's been really cold here and we don't have central heating (not common in NZ), I'm willing Summer to arrive! xxx
