DT post for Crafty Calendar

Hi everyone -hope you all had a good Hallowe'en & bonfire night if you celebrate either of these.
Time for another challenge over on Crafty Calendar challenge blog. The theme this month is sparkle, bling and embellish.
The sponsor this month is Brenda's Lace and Ribbon Specials. Here's a pic of the prize:

I have a friend's birthday in January and thought this would be a good theme for her card.
As it is a winter birthday I decided to use snowflakes as a bunch of flowers.
I die cut the snowflakes in various sizes from white card, blue card & blue glitter card'
I'm really into Kraft card at the moment so used this as my base card.
Picked various papers with a wintry theme to use as backing papers & the paper ribbon down the side. Also used these for the 'stems' & 'leaves'.
I stamped some snowflakes onto the Kraft card using Versamark then sprinkled with some embossing powder.
Stamped the sentiment onto some of the backing paper & made a tab.
Placed all the elements onto the card, finished with a silver bow & some blue stickles on the white snowflakes.
Hope you can pop over to the Crafty Calendar blog and have a look at all the other DT members lovely makes, hopefully enter the challenge as well!

DT post for Creative Artiste

Hi everyone - already into the second week of November ! 
I can't believe it - but it does mean it's time for challenge 8 over on Creative Artiste blog. The theme this month is Anything Goes/Traditional Christmas(i.e. Red, Green & Gold).
I decided to go with the Traditional Colours theme.
To see the winner of challenge 7 & the top 3 click HERE
I used an empty jar, the backing from some paper napkins, gilding flakes, stamps & ribbon.
The image is is the lovely Victorian Winter Emily digi stamp from Lacy Sunshine Stamps.
It is such a beautiful image - I took the image into Craft Artist & resized it to fit the side of my jar. I thought printing onto the single ply of the napkin might be difficult so I taped a piece to some card then printed onto it - hey presto! it worked!
I took some more of the single ply napkin, enough to cover my jar & carefully adhered it to the jar using Americana DecouPage. I like how it gives a frost feel to the jar.
I then carefully tore around my image & adhered this to the jar.
I stamped some leaves around the image then applied some gilding flakes around the top of the jar & around the sides of the image. Tied some ribbon around the top & placed a tealight inside.
Hope you like it. Pop over to Creative Artiste and check out the other DT members lovely makes. Enter the challenge - you never know you might win some lovely digi's from Lacy Sunshine!
