A gem of a challenge cold and frosty

Hello friends! What a busy week I have had with the kids off for half term and now I get to top it off with a 10 hr shift at work today and an 11 hour shift tomorrow due to someone being off sick, oh well money towards christmas I guess!
Today sees another challenge over at A gem of a challenge and this one has been set by the lovely Janet who wants us to make something with a theme of "Cold and Frosty" and guess what I made another shaker card lol, I'm suddenly loving these!

I have followed the fabulous sketch over at Sweet sketch Wednesday for my card and have used the sublime Tim Holtz shabby chic papers (Yes Laurie I know they are only for stroking but I just can't help myself!!!) I have used snowtex on all the corners for a distressed look and machine stitched. My ribbon and pearls are from stash, my sentiment is waltzingmouse and I have used a magnolia doo hickey die in the form of the swirl and marianne Ds snowflakes die cuts under my flowers. My stunning flowers are mostly from mulberry crafts with the odd bits from a local craft shop.

My sweet image is Angel Chloe from Pink Gem Designs and she has been coloured with prisma pencils. I have found these amazing wood flourish frames from Kaisercraft, I'm also adoring all their wooden flourish range at the mo! I used some acrylic paint mixed with crackle glaze (prob will prime it next time) and then after it had dried used snowtex around the edges. My clear front is OHP sheet and my shaker bits are white and silver glitter.
I have also snowtexed my flowers and stickle glittered my die cuts.

I hope you will join us in this fab challenge and also check out the superb creations from the rest of my teamies!
I would also like to enter this into Lollipop crafts Embellish it, Party time Tues anything goes, Crafts and me Winter Blues, Charisma anything goes, Dutch dare pearls and swirls, Crafty Ribbons Bingo (flowers, ribbons and dies), Aud sentiments winter theme, Totally papercrafts glitter it and Raise the bar sew what.
Thanks so much for coming by my blog again folks, I'm hoping I may be a bit more creative next wk with the kiddies back to school!
Hugs to everyone
