Charisma #46 - Snowflakes

Time for a new challenge at Charisma! Thanks to Natalie for choosing the theme of Snowflakes!

Here are our wonderful sponsors for this challenge:
Crimson cloud are offering 3 packs of die cuts of one winners choice!
is a £10 Voucher from the lovely Joanna Sheen!
The lovely Sally-ann at Digistamp Boutique is offering a lucky winner 6 individual Digis of their choice!

And finally, a mini surprise only available to our Facebook entries!!

Here's my inspiration card for you, as you might have noticed this snowflake stamp has cropped up a few times on my blog recently! I'm loving trying out lots of different techniques with it and getting so many different looks from just one stamp!

This time I've used gold and pink glitter embossing powders from a company called 'Wow' who make the most fabulous range of embossing powders you could ever wish for!
The papers is from a Basic Grey pad which is not christmas related at all but I thought the colours tied in very nicely! The ribbon is from stash and the sentiment is from craftwork cards. The little glittery snowflakes are made with a Marianne snowflake die!
Thanks for stopping by today :)
