This was my little tease.
and this is the card I made from my sketch
And below is a little tutorial of how I made the master board for my card.
I chose 2 blue and 1 white Paperartsy Fresco acrylic paints. I used a sheet of mixed media card.
Using a circle stencil I made some random circles on the card using a brush allowing time to dry between the colours. I stenciled the dark blue spots first.
I then stamped my Visible Image snowflake stamps randomly over the card using black archival ink
Then I stamped some smaller snowflakes using the white and the pale blue paints. Be careful to wash your stamps quickly after stamping using paint.
And this was my finished master board
To complete my card I stamped again on a Kraft card blank using embossing ink. I added embossing glitter which I heat set. I die cut the TimHotlz branch and bird using cardboard packaging and added plenty of glitter for sparkle and a couple of star gems.
Here are some close ups of my card. The sentiment is also by Visible Image.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

Thanks so much for visiting me here and a warm welcome to my newest followers. Today is a very special day as it's my granddaughter Daisy's birthday party....she is 2 next Wednesday...how did that happen! I have been busy cake making and decorating and making lots of zoo themed decorations...here's a sneak peek of some of the models I have made...
I will share the finished cake and some party photos with you very soon. Luckily her chicken pox is no longer contagious...all good timing. The cake is boxed up and we're ready to set off very soon for Southampton. All very exciting.
Enjoy your weekend.
Bye for now,
