Distressed 'A Snowflake is Winters Butterfly' Card

Good morning everyone! Hope you had a fantastic Christmas day and enjoy Boxing Day too-I have been busy working on a tutorial for you for Crafty Ribbons so watch this space! :-)
I havent blogged many of my christmas cards this year so I thought I would choose some of my favourites to post over the next few days! :-)
This card was made based around a Visible Image stamp which those of you who know me well is just the perfect sentiment to lure me in! ;-) I stamped and heat embossed this with a couple of other stamps from my stash which I have never used before. The corner one is a LOTV stamp and the snowflake came with a free stamp set from a magazine :-) I then coloured my paper with Tim Holtz distress inks to show off the sentiment and pattern to their best. I spritzed the paper with water to give a slightly more distressed and snowy looking feel too. I embellished with gems then used Bo Bunny Snowfall papers as my base.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

  1. Hi Elaine. This card is really beautiful. I hope you are having a fabulous Christmas. Big apology time from me now, lol. Im so sorry I haven't been about. Its been a bit hectic and sadly we had 2 deaths in the family which have been hard. Its meant I haven't been in the mood for crafting really. But hopefully I am back on track and I will be about Blogland a bit more. Merry Christmas to you and your family. Lee x
