Wet Wednesday but chin up its ABC Challenge yay!

Good Wednesday morning everyone
Its wet wet wet here in Cumbria! and Boy oh Boy its so windy! shame its so wet my washing would dry in no time! if it was windy and warm! fat chance! Our new challenge is this time at ABC Christmas Challenge Hosted my Miria is………
S for Shaped card, and including one of these:
Swirls, Spots or Stripes,
We have 2 AWESOME sponsors I wish I was able to win!
The lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp are offering one lucky entrant A $15 voucher to spend in her store,
AND Karen's Doodles are offering a brilliant prize too!
1 Lucky winner will receive 3 digis images of their choice.
So then….
I have made a mini shaped card from my New Shapeabilities blossom tags and accents I have to say I am sooooo pleased with this set there are 9 dies and I have used 3 to make this card, cutting the main card and then the top easel layer but embossing them all…. the lovely Karen's doodles sent us some images to play with and I choose to use the stunning Winter Angel…   I wanted to colour her in the minimum amount possible so not to detract from the wintry feel.. So I have used tumbled glass on her dress and black soot for her hair, distress inks of course! and I chose to work with Swirls, I embossed the bottom die cut and ran in through my culttlebug using divine swirls, the glammed it with glamour dust.. a few Martha Stewart snowflakes and some ( not make that lots) of crystal stickles
I also added some glossy accents on the cute little snow globe.
Having fun with some other challenges too -

Hope you come and join us at ABC Christmas Challenge this time Christmas will be here before you know it!

Happy Wednesday friends

hugs me xx
