Have you Scene the New Challenge At the Secret Crafter??

Good morning to you all
Today sees the next challenge at the

with the fabulous owner of the Secret Crafter Wendy choosing our theme of

Create a Scene

Now this sort of through me out of my little box, and I really struggled to come up with something, until I remembered I had won a gift from Paper Creator and at the time I had chosen this Shelf Card Digi download kit.  Never done one before and not sure if will again, but it was an interesting crafting session all the same.  They say it is good to try something new and I will have to agree.       So whilst on the theme of new, I have to tell you that I got a box of 100 latex gloves yesterday and can airbrush to my hearts content without spraying my nails - whoop whoop!!!!!! so will be off to play again once I have done a little ironing, although the sun is out which always says to me colouring in the garden, so let's see what happens.  Oh and Sam thank you for the offer and for pointing out that I have spent my week catching up on the house work, I know this is not me, but after the ironing (if that happens) all will be well............... thank you for your concern :)

So this is the shelf card that I created for today's challenge
As you can see there are lots of little pieces that were hand cut out and then slotted into little openings, several layers and even a boxed envelope to match.  
I added icicles stickles to all the snow topped trees.

Please don't forget to hop over to the challenge blog to see my design team buddies, wonderful creations, and hope you enjoy the challenge

So pleased normal service is now resumed, thought I might have to call in for a temp check - lol.

Not too sure about the latex glove though - lol. Probably would have been worth coming just to see you in those, well I guess it beats the Marigolds - lol!!!!!!

Kate - this is just too amazing!! I don't have what it takes to put something this amazing together. You created a beautiful scene.

This is so clever and I love all the little elves. A new box of gloves to protect your nails is a good thing especially if you pay a lot to get them done like I do :) Thanks for joining us at Phindy's Place.

Fantastic card. I have never seen this type before. The images are a bit dark so it`s a bit difficult to see, but you have done a great job on this. Thanks for joining us at Phindy`s Place. Hugs...Mona
