Another day and another card from the weekend.
This card is very simple, I've let the beautiful glittery paper do the talking from Best Creations Inc CT Snowflake.  I have used AC textured card stock and layered a rectangle of snowflake paper edged with Versamagic chalk ink sea breeze.  I then used my Spellbinder Nestabilities round and big scalloped circles large to create a shaker topper also using a further circle of the snowflake paper, acetate and a frame combining the circle and scallop circle.  I then have layers up the sandwich with a roll of 3d foam adding glitter from Martha Stewart Gingerbread selection.  Finally added a small bow of burgundy ribbon, a jem on the snowflake from K & Co and edged with black ink and white gel pens.

Onto another Gorjuss stamp "flower girl", I have coloured her with my copic's and highlighted with white gel pen and pearls.  I have again made a frame using my Spellbinder Nestabilities circles and big scalloped circles using snowflake paper supplied by the Papeterie and edged with black ink, I have attaches a snowflake metal embellishment with some white sheer ribbon.  The background paper is again from Best Creations Inc Fx Taboganing and has beautifully glittered trees.  I have created a strip across the top with Martha Stewart punch lace heart and a further strip of FX Taboganing paper as well as two tabs in grey AC textured card and snowflake paper, corner rounded and topped with a pearl.  The stamp "Happy Christmas" is from PI Christmas Cheer.  The card is then mat and layers with grey and white AC textured card stock, finished with white gel pen and black ink.
The coordinating Christmas cracker template was from Waltzingmousestamps, with many thanks to the guys over there for letting me use it.  I have used the paper from the Papeterie Snowflake, sheer ribbon and grey AC card with my Martha Stewart lace heart around the bottom.  The rectangles of Best Creations Taboganing papers were created using Nestabilities long classic rectangles large with a stamp "Noel" from the PI Christmas cheer set finished off with pearls and black marker pen.

Phew, that's me for another day...I'm off now to my local craft shop to coordinate this coming Saturday's demo at Papercraft's Boutique "The House of Sugar" .
Before I go I'd just like to say a big "thank you" to all the girls who came to my Hopeman crop yesterday afternoon for fun, giggles, crafting and cake.  I had a great afternoon in great company, looking forwards to the next one on the 31st of October, cackle, cackle and don't forget the challenge.....create something on a Halloween theme.
