Full of Xmas Sparkle

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
On Sunday I had the pleasure to hold a class for some fabulous ladies at Grimsby Crafts. 

Here is the card that I created for the class
A monochromatic twisted easel card, with sparkle, shimmer and puff.
The base layer and contrast colour is mirror card, the papers here are by Dovecraft but in the class we used the Papermania Mono collection papers.  All layers have been distressed and then glittered, oh a girl can never have to much sparkle.  The front sentiment is from a set of 6 Wild Rose little circles and the inner sentiment is Personal Impressions set of 3.  The flowers from Wild Orchid and a holly corner punch has been used along with the snowflake edge punch.  

As always some close ups
the flowers on the easel itself
The flowers on the return
and the copic coloured image.  The snow is diamond dust available from the Hobby House, the image is Nellie Snellen available from Grimsby Crafts.  The fluffy around the hats is liquid appliqué, sprinkled with glimmer mist. Copic colours used are the full suite of cool greys and and the full set of warm greys

I would like to welcome all my new followers and wish you all well in the 400 follower candy.   For those of you that have not yet entered the 400 follower candy you can do so here
