Xmas feels like just around the corner

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
I previously mentioned that over the weekend, I got to do some serious crafting, and here is another of my little creations that I made on Sunday.

This is sort of similar to a card that we will be making in my local card class - Grimsby Crafts, so if you are in the local area and want to join us - click here and give Lynn a call, copic colouring techniques are also part of the class, hope you decide to join us

The base layers is a silver mirror card, with some gorgeous Me to You 6 x 6 papers called Glitter paper pack Winter Wonderland.  I have selected three papers from this stack all using the aqua theme, from Grimsby Crafts.  The image is by Nellie Snellen, called Christmas Time Stamp - child also available at Grimsby Crafts.  The little tag is from the paper stack too, I added a Whiff of Joy sentiment to this. The feather, ribbon and lace thread through ribbon are from my stash.  The aqua bling diamanté are from Grimsby Crafts, the smaller ones have been added to the centre of each of the silver mirror card, punched snowflake. The lace thread through has been gathered across the return with some aqua slim ribbon.  I used a MS snowflake edge punch under this. The charm is from the Hobby House.
The image plate and sentiment plates have been initially air bushed with BG15, then dipped in glue on all edges and a very fine non static clear glitter added, which picks up the under aqua colour. The sentiment on the return are also available at Grimsby Crafts.
The flowers are all Wild Orchid which again have been air brushed with BG15. Hope you can see the little snowflake charm hiding.
and finally the image, polar white flower soft adorns the floor, stickles Icicles floats from the sky, liquid appliqué is the fluff around her face and the image of course coloured with copics.
