This is my second post today and what a challenge that last post was. First Mr Blogger wouldn't let me upload my image and then inlinkz was undergoing maintenance so I couldn't link to the last challenge for a while. Hopefully all will be well with this post.

There's a rather challenging sketch this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, my favourite sort with lots of lovely layers so there's a lot going on with this card. I've gone for a different colour combo on this one as I don't usually mix pink and red but inspired by the papers decided to give it a try. I added glitter to the snow on the image and used some glitter card to mount the fab LOTV image and to die cut the snowflakes. The lace is from a haberdashery shop and I threaded ribbon through the holes in the lace and added a snowflake charm from the Hobby House.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
Lili of the Valley Glittery and glitz
Creative Inspirations Winter wood land
Simon Says Sparkle
Paperplay Let it snow
Teddy Stampers Bling it on
Allsorts Lace, ribbon and a charm
CES Lovely lace

I may be back later with more creations.
