Snowflakes and Ribbon.....

Good morning, wow Friday already....just where has this week gone? Is it just me or is December flying ???

I have been really busy this week making samples for Clarity in the USA.....have you seen you can watch Barbra on C&C USA? It is a really exciting time for us all....

Back to today....we have a new Challenge over at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge Blog...

Our new theme is Snowflakes and Ribbon....and is hosted by our lovely Mary Lou.....with our sponsor being Fresh Brewed Designs....

This Challenge will last for four weeks....plenty of time to submit and entry....

Here is my take on the theme...

I started by colouring a tag with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and a mini blending tool....keeping the edges darker...

Next came some stamping to create the scene using a really useful set of Clarity stamps ...the Christmas miniatures..

 

For my focal point I used a little Deer that I had in my stash again coloured using Distrees ink and I added a couple of stamps too.

 

Now for the card base...to carry on with the theme, more colour and stamping...

Next to make the snowflake embellishments...I used a snowflake die from Marianne Dies...

Cut all three out and assembled them with a gem in the centre ...

Then to the fun bit ...to assemble together and arrange the embellishments...and the ribbon...

 

I do love all the embellishments that are around at Christmas...

One final touch ....and a lovely sentiment at the base of the card....

 

Another fabulous stamp from Clarity...

So there we have my finished card....one of only five that I have made so far...!!!! Grrrrrrr

I know....I need to get a move on....

I would love you to go the the Challenge page and check out the inspiration from my fellow DT members ...
