Hello lovely bloggers,

Hope you are having a nice and relaxed weekend... I did some craft retail therapy and bought myself some stamps. Hopefully, I will not store them until next year or later!!! Lol.

Here is another card that I made  for the bazaars but it sold much later... The total count is 167 cards so far and I am rather chuffed.
I was quite happy with the way it turned out - CAS!


Card stock - white with slight texture
Aperture - Ek Success square punch
Red square - Another Ek Success punch
Big snowflake - metallic white paper MS layered two snowflakes with foam dots
Crystal - Prima
Small snowflakes - white punched with the same metallic white paper as the big snowflake
Silver dots in the centre of each snowflake - pop up fabric silver glitter glue

Am going to enter this card in Less is More - snowflakes.

Off to put Aleeza to bed, she napped in the afternoon so she seems all bright eyed and fresh now.

Hello Monica. Wow, this one is gorgeous. I love the White on white type of cards, and this is really beautiful with the pop of red, so striking and very effective.
Lots of love, Sandra xxx

This is a beautiful card Monica,but it looks as though a few extra layers have crept in with those lovely punched snowflakes and the red square. This week is our One Layer week... quite a tricky technique I must admit, if you're not sure what is required, do take a look at the top of our blog!
We'll look forward to seeing more of your fab work in future challenges!
Thanks so much
