Feeling frosty

Today it is time for the new challenge over at colour create and this week it is the super talented Sharon's turn to choose our colour combo.

Here is the photo inspiration for you

so the colours are blue, white and silver and the optional extra is embossing.

So for my card, from the base up, I used my spray and sparkle glitter to add some silver sparkle on the card base. Next I embossed 2 layers - a layer of card and a layer of vellum - with my cuttlebug embossing folder {thanks Mum x} and inked the top vellum layer with some blue ink just to highlight that yummy embossed pattern.

The doily was inked too and then sprayed with spray and sparkle I then sprayed it again with spray and shine so it has a super sparkly sheen to it.
The rosette is made from a patterned vellum - I haven't used vellum since last Christmas and here I am using it twice on one card !

The snowflake was diecut with my mariannes createables die and I added a large clear gem for a bit more bling then just added a stamped sentiment - Voila !

I had a great time making this card so I hope you like it and will join in with us at colour create for our last challenge in 2011.
