Gruffies and Guest Challenge Blog - December 2015 - Anything goes or the option of SNOWFLAKES AND SPARKLE

Today it is time for me to show you another card for the Gruffies and Guests Challenge Blog.

 The topic for December 2015 is "anything goes with the option of snowflakes and sparkle".

Don't forget you do have the option of anything goes plus if you do use the optional theme (this month it is "snowflakes and sparkle") you will get 2 chances in the prize draw.

Don't forget to enter the challenge you MUST use a House Mouse, Happy Hoppers or Gruffies image.
This month we are lucky to have our sponsor as Petal Lu.  Petal Lu sells an amazing array of stunning flowers.  The prize for the challenge winner is a £10 lucky dip of flowers from their store.

Now who wouldn't want to win that????
This month I have used an image and backing paper from my Joanna Sheen House Mouse Christmas Projects CD/Book.  I love this image.  I printed out the design sheet twice so I could decoupage the large image.  I have added some Stickles glitter glue for the snow.

I have used Tim Holtz's Tumbled Glass, Chipped Sapphire, Broken China and Faded Jeans distress inks and rubbed the colours over some watercolour card.  I then spritzed with water to merge the colours and left to dry.  I then used a snowflake die I won a few years ago in a blog candy and cut the snowflakes out of the card.  I then rubbed them over with some Stickles glitter glue for some sparkle.

I have finished the card off with some Christmas ribbon, snowflakes, die-cut buttons, gems and a sentiment from a Debbi Moore CD which I have edged with the same Stickles glitter glue.
