Snow flakes

Good morning everyone what a beautiful start to the weekend. The sun is shinning here in London. I am off to try and do some Christmas shopping in a minute so to get me into the spirit of things I had on a Christmas CD which my husband promptly took off and said it was far too early.  What a killjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a Teddy Bea Christmas card to share with you today. i have used one of my much awaited memory box dies and they only arrived yesterday.

The papers were a complete bargain, I found them in the clearance bin reduced from £7.99 the stack to £2.99. They are by Dovecraft. The card it's self is an easel cut from a piece of A4 white card stock in 380gm.

Lots and lots of embellishments on this one. A Sizzix die was used for the large snowflake, the snow flake boarder is of course Memory Box (I love how they look so delicate). Oval nesties have been used for the image base which has then been matted onto a scalloped oval nestie in kaleidoscopic silver.
The small snow flakes are wooden chip pieces that have been embossed. 
Then lashings of cotton lace and rose ribbon finished off with blue peals and cream peal stick pins. The snow flake charm is one that I found at the bottom of my craft draw.

This is Teddy Bea Snow flake flight, my husband think that it looks like the power of Grey Skull pose. ( For those of you too young to remember it was from He man the cartoon series!!! by the way I am far too young to remember this particular series so I am not listening too him!)
The Image has been coloured with Copic markers and embellished with lots of stickles.

Copic colours
Challenges that I would like to enter.
Hope you like it let me know if you do.

Hi Jayne, wow what a gorgeous card! Love the die-cuts - I was sorely tempted to get one (in the few places they were in stock!) but I didn't in the end as I don't like buying Christmas stuff that I can only use at Christmas, it was a struggle tho to say no!!!
