Bah Humbug Challenge 19 - Snowflakes

Another week another challenge .. yes, its that time over at Bah Humbug and CHNC where fab. challenges have been set. I have managed to combine two challenges with one card. Challenge 19 over at
Bah Humbug is 'Snowflakes' The DT designs, as ever, are just lovely and over at CHNC chllenge 20 is
'Don't get distressed about distressing' as is usual,  Hazel's work is stunning.

Here is my card. Not the best Pic. I know. I am just getting used to a new camera phone - not owned one before. I dropped my old phone last week- A very basic Nokia - the inner screen smashed! I have had for an eternity, it has served me well. I took the plunge on getting somthing a bit more up to date.
I took the pics. quickly late last night as time was going to be against me today.
I have used a 'Tatty Teddy' clear RS, of which is a freebie with the recent creativity magazine. I have coloured him with promarkers. I have added a likkle cuttlebug snowflake - as if Tatty Teddy is holding the snowflake. I have embellished the snowflake with tiny irridescent 3D type sequins
These have also been added to the corners and above the nestie circle. I have embossed, using the snowflake Cutlebug embossing folder, onto whitewash C'ordinations card and then distressed it by sanding the embossing,the edges are distressed using a pair of scissors and some fluid chalk.

  4. Another cracking card for our challenge this week. That stamp is adorable and I like how you have him holding a snowflake especially for us at Bah! Humbug! lol!
    I've been trying to get a hold of a copy of Creativity in our local craft stores 'cos I wanted this tatty teddy stamp but so far everywhere has sold out so looks like I'll have to do without. I know I can get the magazine online but object to paying the postage - makes the magazine too expensive. Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
