The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge DT play with Kenny K

Good afternoon to you all
and welcome to the next

I apologise for the lateness of this post, this was due to creating an additional page link at the top, relating to last weeks wonderful open weekend at the Secret Crafter shop.  There were lots of photo's as Matt did really well as the unofficial photographer for the weekend.  He was using his new phone that is better at taking photo's than my crafting camera :(

Moving on then, I did manage to hop like mad all over the place last week to see all the wonderful creations that our very talented followers entered into the home made gifts challenge, wow you all do think right outside the box don't you.

This week my teamie Melissa has given us a Recipe to follow

3 Snowflakes
2 Circles

The design team were also given the choice of some amazing Kenny K images to use, I chose "Xmas Shopping"  as our sponsor for the last challenge of November is the one and only

Elena and Kenny have very generously offered 3 prizes for us.

* 1st prize - any 3 digis of choice

* 2nd prize - any 2 digis of choice

* 3rd prize - a digi of choice
Here is my design team creation

These papers are MME. The base card is gold mirror card, the paper edges have been distressed and stickles added.  I used the circle nestie to create the circles and emobssed these also.  I added Tim Holtz Tattered Rose distress ink around the image and the sentiment.  I added the gold edge lace with the red ribbon threaded through this on the top and bottom of the inner return and made a bow to frame the sentiment.  I used a die cut snowflake a cuttlebug one I believe and then an antique snowflake to drop on some gold chain.  A little punched snowflake on the top of the large on and a brad from stash.  I also used some liquid applique for her fluffy bits.
Die's, Nestie's, stickles, distress ink and ribbon can be located at the Secret Crafter Shop

Here are some more images
The snowflakes in more detail, the snowflake has been cut out of acetate and then glass particules added for the frosty look (it is snowing and settleing again as I write this, so it does look so similar)  I added a little stickles too.
A close up of the image, she is coloured with copics, oh almost forgot to mention the Xmas sakuro on her hat and the cut in half fluff bobble.
and finally that all important inner return
B r b ....................................................... need to get a coffee as the snow is making me feel cold just looking at it :)

OK here I am again, and I am entering this creation into the following challenges
