As usual this week there seems to be so many challenges I want to enter. I had a quick scan through the challenges and decided first of all to make something slightly different using a shaped card. The girl in the bonnet is an image from lilli of the valley cute Christmas squares. To make the central picture circle I took a circle die cut and added a smaller embossed circle on top. My lotv piccy was cut into a slightly smaller circle, added to the top of the die cuts and surrounded with silver beads. I covered all over inside the beaded circle with glossy accents and left this to dry. This is the first time I have used glossy accents and I did have some bubbles in the circle but they were very small and have not spoilt the look. I hope whoever gets this card thinks they were meant to be there ha ha. The shaped card I used came from Craftwork cards and I put two of these together to make the card which I covered with snowflake paper. I searched my lace box and found the exact shade to match my card. I used flowers and leaves from Wild Orchid and some lovely snowflakes that I punched using a punch that my good friend Tina lent me. I loved it when it was finished and was pleased that I had made a xmas card that was a little bit different for a change.
I have netered this card into several challenges that are listed below.
