A time for lots of shine for Sweet Stampin'

Good morning one and all

Woo Hoo!  I am on the design team for a second term!  Absolutely fab!

Another Saturday morning - I cannot understand where the time has gone this week.  I know I have been doing stuff, but nothing to blog as I was trying to catch up on getting cards done for Christmas and some are for people who might see them.

Anyway, on to the  Sweet Stampin' Challenge this week.  We have a recipe for you.  Three papers, two embellishments, one image.  Wot - no flowers from me?

We are sponsored by Craft Brulee today, and our monthly sponsor is Crafty Emma's Store.

Well, I already had my background made, but what to put on it.  In the end, I decided to be clever - wrong move - I now have gold leafing flakes all over the floor, because they jumped out of the box at me when I put the lid on.  In the box the leafing flakes look greeny silver, now on the card they have a gold colour!!

All my paper is from last year - not sure which brand - I made this background up a few weeks ago as part of a batch for my marathon Christmas card session.  The image is Penny Black.  I have cut snowlakes with Martha Stewart punches from silver holographic card, and added small blue ones over the top, which I glittered.  Ribbon and other bits and pieces from stash.

I am entering this for the following challenges:
Don't forget to pop along to the Sweet Stampin' Challenge to have a look at all the fab creations.
I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you.

  9. Very pretty and lots of sparkle. Love your snowflakes. I have a smile trying to imagine your floor with all the gold leafing flakes everywhere. I think we've all been there...try spilling microbeads. Ugh! Thanks so much for joining the Stampin B's this week.

  10. Fabulous colour Val and what an unusual tree image. I love it and it looks great with the gilding flakes. They do tend to jump about don't they, Lol? They're so full of static the same thing happened to me the other evening. I didn't even get a piece of work I liked out of it either. It ended up in the bin!!!
