It's snow time

This is another card for my CHNC challenge 20 'don't get stressed about distressing!' - I simply tore the card with the image around the edges. If you haven't joined in my challenges yet, why not start now - we're nearly five months through the year already and Christmas will come round so soon - if you make a lot of cards, now is the time to start, if you haven't already done so - and I know lots of you have because I enjoy seeing all your creations on the challenge blog.

Back to this card, I've used the sketch for Cards & things 78:

On the silver grey stardream card, I used two different Basic Grey papers - the main background is ambrosia and the panel that's got the image on is sugar rush - neither of them are Christmas papers, but I think they work well for the colour combo, so this is for Basic Grey 44, which is to mix and match a couple of BG items.

I've used one of my favourite stamps, Penny Black fantasy, stamping with versamark and heat embossing with detail silver powder. So this is another entry for Penny Black's Saturday challenge 151: clean & simple, as well as Jac-inks 8: heat embossing.

I then added a couple of ribbons, one on top of the other and a glittered snowflake.


This is also for:

Bah! humbug 19: snowflakes
Christmas stampin all year long: you've got me in stitches (the narrower of the two ribbons is stitched at the edges)
CES 36: holidays
Gingerloft 17: plant a tree
Stamping vacation: inspiration station challenge: dancing tree
Stampavie 141: ribbons
Pixie dust 74: make it shiny
Creative craft: distressed
Cute card Thursday 164: it's so distressing
Crafty creations 118: anything goes
Penny's 53: anything goes
Scrappy frogs: anything goes
Sew many challenges 53: anything goes
Stamp something: anything goes
Inspire me Fridays 6: anything goes
