I don't often use gems and pearls on my cards so this was a perfect challenge for me! I used the colours from this week's Colour Me! challenge - CMCC#39 and the layout from this week's Freshly Made Sketches - FMS#155. I stamped snowflakes, in totally non-traditional colours, randomly over the card and then added a panel of design paper to go along the edge of the card. I stamped the main image onto white card and cut it out with the stitched tag die. I stamped the image again in turquoise and cut out the "nice" part and adhered it to the tag. I finished the tag with some gems, pearls and a turquoise hole reinforcer. I added a tangerine twine bow. I added a few more pearls to the centres of some of the snowflakes. On the inside a cut a couple of mat layers in design paper, stamped orange snowflakes around the edge of the white panel and finished with a Christmas sentiment.

Before I go, I'd like to remind you that there's still plenty of time to join in with this week's Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge where our theme is Christmas. You must use at least one WM stamp, sentiment or digi on your card - mine's all WMS!!!!
I hope you all have a super weekend. I've got a really crafty weekend planned - I'm attending several workshops run by Amy Flowers at my local shop - Stampeddler Plus - I'll share photos later. Bye for now!
