Not more snowflakes....the revenge!

Hi folks, a quick post from me as I am working later today plus I have a fancy dress costume to make for school tomorrow...my youngest has to go as a Roald Dahl figure from one of his books. 
Mmmm that should be fun to do!

Another card today from my Inverness demonstration.
I will continue to show them all over the coming week, sorry if you've been waiting.
Another teal effort for you today although it looks a lot darker in the photo....how does that work when I took the picture the same time as the one on yesterdays post?  The mind boggles!


And not a Spellbinder die in sight!
I have used PI stamps "Snowflakes" by Sue Dix and "Many Greetings" by Kirsty Wiseman.  With the snowflakes I have used clear embossing powder then applied Distress ink Evergreen Bough.  The punch is from Martha Stewart and is Doily lace.  Ribbon from my stash.

I love stamping and embossing with clear powder as it reminds me of the joy of magic painting as a child.....it so is magic! 
Eat your heart out Dynamo, that guy is good. 
Anyway that is all for me today, catch you tomorrow.  x

Beautiful card Erika. Simple but stunning.

Could you not just dress him in old clothes give him a bar of chocolate and send him as Charlie....

Revenge of the snowflakes?!! By golly count me out of that one. 'Snow' is a four-lettered word I'll have you know. I do love the card though. I think teal makes a good winter color. I like how you divided up the sections on this card, with just a bit up top. It works well!
