Creative inspirations winter colours, Blue, White and grey

Hello folks hope we are all well today! Its a bit of a sickie house here my little man came home yesterday and practically collapsed on me with a high temp and hacking, wheezing cough. He had been popped into bed with a large dose of kiddie ibuprofen and is not going to school today and probably not for the rest of the week just to be on the safe side. It has been a seriuos lack of sleep here so I apologise for my lateness today and possible incoherance!
There is a new challenge this wk over at Creative inspirations. We want you to use wintry colours Blue, white and grey. We are sponsored this week by The paper shelter who have given the DT some fab images to work with.

I have used the sketch over at the sweet stop for my card and have used these fab papers from Authentique which were perfect for this colour combo. My lace is prima with my cheesecloth, ribbon and pearls coming from stash. My flowers are wild orchids and my pins are homemade (one by me and one by my lovely friend Bonnie). My sentiment is Waltzingmouse and my tab was cut with nesties. This card is super sparkly but the photos don't show it! I used snowtex on the edges of my papers and this time used gesso and glamour dust on my flowers, trouble is my gesso is cream not white so it sort of looks like dirty snow lol!

My image is paper shelter coloured with Prismas. I have edged in stormy sky distress ink and machine stitched. My snowman is covered with glamour dust and I have used glossy accents for the snow drops
I am also entering this into Kaboodle doodles it's cold outside, Pollycraft xmas fun, Lollipop crafts anything goes, Papertake weekly xmas crackers, Digi tues sparkle and shine and Ladybug crafts ink winter blues.
Thanks so much for coming by my blog, do check out the rest of the DTs superb creations!
Hugs to all

Hi honey girl I'm so sorry to hear that your little guy is sick. I hope he recovered quickly.
Your card is awesome I am so fond of the Christmas blue's. And you've done a fabulous job with Mr Snowman here.
By the way I loved Breaking Dawn. I cried through the first half. OMG I'm such a sucker for romance. I can't wait to see it again.
Love Bonnie

What a stunning card Rebekah, I just love the cool blues and greys youve used. Sorry to hear your wee man isnt well. Hopefully he'll be on the mend in no time. Its so typical that the wee ones spend all summer healthy but as soon as school starts they pick up everything thats going. Poor wee man. I hope he's ok. Lee xx
