I for Inspiration ABC Christmas Challenge

Hi all!
Mr Blogger is being very naughty at the moment!
even changing the links in my post to different ones! Argh!
Anyway its time for another ABC Christmas Challenge today
I was really really pleased to see so many entries this last fortnight and wow the standards were high! And Thank you also for all the fabulous DT entries
But oh my gosh we have a hard job of deliberating who the winners will be, but we will be announcing the lucky ladies to be joining our Team on the 9th May with our ½ way post!
So then on to the challenge for this week! Its Lorraine's turn to host and she has chosen the theme
'I' for - Icy Inspiration
We have 2 pictures for your inspiration

and we also have 2 fabulous sponsors this week

So for my card I have used a Hero Arts Stamp called Large swirl tree which I bought from work (Penrith Crafts) one day I will take home a full pay packet! tehhehee
I have stamped the tree in versamark and then embossed it with Clear embossing powder and then one dry I distressed with greens from the distress ink pads
Then grabbed my stickles, went a bit mad but a you can never have to much stickles right?
and I have added red brads and some liquid pearls too! and a little twine bow.

The Challenge I'm joining is with are:
