Tilda in lilac - 6 challenge combo
I hate doing this but if I don't combine challenges I will never do all challenges that I would like to do. So, this card is for Mojo Monday - Julee has the most fab sketch (all her sketches are!!), Our Creative Corner is Snow, Everybody Art is Winter, ABC is Snow (note the winter theme going on here lol) and Cute Card Thursday is Lilac. It's a colour I hardly ever use (why? I love it now lol) so had to scratch around for some paper with lilac in. The border punch is Martha Stewart - love this one as it punches and embosses and the ribbon was white silk which I coloured with H2O's - thanks for the tip Nettie, it worked a treat. I've also just realised this fits in LOTV challenge this week which is sprinkle and sparkle, the snowflakes certainly do that lol.
I coloured the image with the usual distress inks and H2O's, and added Liquid Pearls for the Mistletoe berries in her hair. I used the Stampin Up pricking mat set to prick the corners.
The snowflake is a cuttlebug die and Martha Stewart punch and I have coated the snowflakes with the most yummy crystal flakes that the Gorgeous Rach sent me. Thanks so much sweetie, I LOVE it xxxxx. The idea is from Anna at Sassy and Sweet - she has the most amazing blog and I spend hours drooling at her work!!! The silver finding is from Eggstravaganza and the brad is Papermania. The DP is Karen Neuburger which I have had for about 3 years (shows how often I use lilac!!). I hope the close up of the snowflake shows the sparkle and texture from the crystal flakes. Looks like spun sugar!!
Thanks for looking,
