For a winter birthday girl (and some bargains!!)

Its my son's girlfriends birthday this month and i thought this beautiful Sweet Pea stamp (Holly Night by Ching Chou Kuik) would be perfect for her card.


I used 2 embossed snowflake card  blanks to make the easel card. The main image is coloured with promarkers and then triple embossed. I added some clear sparkle EP to the middle layer of embossing for a lovely icy effect and some glitter around the candle, it looks beautifully sparkly in real lfe but hasn't shown up in the pic. I stamped some black snowflakes on white pearl card for the layer behind the image and added some flowers made with a Marianne Ribbon flower die and some clear gems. The sentiment is stamped and embossed in black on an acrylic tag, the reverse of the tag is embossed with icicle tex EP. Some black gems and a black velvet bow to finish the card off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
ABC Challenge: I is for Ice
Cupcake: Light it up
Oldie but Goodie: Christmas Birthday (just sneaking in with my sweet pea stamp I think but my snowflake stamp is at least 2 years old )
C.R.A.F.T: Christmas birthday
Crafty Purple Frog: Easel Cards
Moving along with the Times: For someone special


I love Sweet Pea stamps and Linda at Jazzlins Designs has a fab offer at the minute - 5 stamps for £10!!!! Wow, I'm waiting for the snow to thaw so postie can deliver mine! Pop over to Jazzlins and grab yours if you fancy a bargain
