Playing in the Snow

As the snow starts to fall once again outside, I don't think I could have chosen a more appropriate card than this one to share with you all!

It's another of those very special cards that I did manage to make in my, more than busy run up to the Christmas and it's something a little bit different to the other's that I've been sharing with you but I love it!
I actually made this card for my Dad to give to my Mum because just like me, she also adores penguins. So, I knew that this lil creation was going to go to a good home and be gratefully received. The actual image is all hand glittered, using Martha Stewart glitters and a glitter by numbers sheet that I bought from QVC. It's a little bit messy but the end result is definitely worth it.

I also, have to recommend the glitters which are amazing...the sparkle on them is stunning and these photos just can't do that justice.
Once the image was finished, I chose some backing papers that I'd been saving for a special occasion and matted them onto the card blank. The handmade roses are once again courtesy of Tim Holtz's Tattered Florals die and as a final touch, some beautiful organza ribbon that matched perfectly and then, I added my beloved snowflakes, die cut using a Spellbinders Snowflake die.

Hope you all have a fabulous and not too busy, weekend!!
Love Emma
