Tilda & Co challenge Card

*Challenge 32* Cold as ice...

The sun is now drifting away very fast and soon it will be as cold as ice....

Using the colours Blue & white Only . Show us how cold your projects can feel this week.

This week was a hard one, I was a bit tired and although my mojo didn't have a holiday, my spirits regarding crafting did - I could'nt find any energy to make this card.. today I promised myself that I HAD to make it!!

This week Tilda's Challenge Blog asked us to use blue and white, and the card had to be related to "Cold". And what's more cold than Snow? Another Christmas related card, but I like it :)

As usual the Scan doesn't make justice to the real feel of the card, but here it is!
I used:
White, Dark blue and a small piece of silver cardstock
DCWV Text Prints Matt Stack
DP from stash
Tilda Image
Nestabilities and Big Shot
Sizzix Stars and swirls embossing folder
Snowflake designed Vellum
White and light blue organza ribbon
Pearl Brad
Fiskars Texture Plate (to hand emboss the heap of snow Tilda is sitting on)
Rayher Felt Snowflakes
Pastel Chalks and blue and white inkpads (for inking edges and making a "snowy" feel around the base layers)

It took me quite a long time to finish it, but I'm happy with the result. I wish to find some more time for another challenge or two.. who knows, maybe tomorrow? We''ll see!
Thanks for visiting dear friend, and may the Blessing of God fill your heart.
