Katharina's New Stamps! GD call!

Katharina is launching a new range of stamps called Whiff of Joy. There's a new (amazingly talented!) design team, with room for Guest Designers every 2 months, it's all very exciting! Here is the link for here GD call, which is to make a card using this sketch, by the 30th of July.

Here's my entry! I've used my cute new Honey with Gifts Sugar Nellie stamp, paper pieced with Pink Petticoat paper (also in background) and coloured with water colour pencils. This card got some serious glitter treatment!! (It's hard to see in the photo, have a closer look!) The white card is stamped with little snowflakes and embossed with sparkly embossing powder, there's glitter on her coat, hat and scarf and then I used Stickles to make a border and also glitter the snowflake brads (Poppicrafts I think). Then I just matted it all on silver card, wrapped some thread around and added a Stamps Away Christmas sentiment embossed with silver powder. Phew! Thanks for looking!

I'm also adding this as my second for Fabs Christmas Challenge!
