It's time for me to post my latest card for the challenge sponsored by 

I can't believe the challenge is almost over, it's the first year that I've managed to participate thanks to the fact that we've not flown the coop to spend the winter in our little chalet in the mountains!

This is Linda's tag to inspire us which I love and as ever I've gone & done my own thing inspired by her snowflakes and the industrial silver look.

I rummaged around and found a piece of metal (foil dish) that was large enough to fit the folder that I planned to use. I trimmed, embossed scrubbed with a copper pan scourer and then rubbed some ink into the scratches in the metal, it's gone a lovely shade of blue/grey.
I die-cut 3 sizes of snowflake from different silver card and layered them using foam sticky pads. 
The wishes has also been raised, it's been sitting in the Xmas stash box for about 3 years!
The snowflakes that are embossed around the edge of the frame have had some silvery blue slickwriter
dots added, something else that has been in the craft box for years (probably about 25!!!)

This is a close up of the metal (minus the pearl blue dots)

Only one more to go!

  3. Oh my goodness but this is GORGEOUS!! Love the colors and all the textures you've made!!!

  4. Good grief....beautiful!!! That is just stunning looking :)

  5. An amazing card Sally- looks absolutely gorgeous!

  6. Oh my goodness, this is exquisite! The embossing is amazing on the silver. I've used disposable aluminum pans in the past too for metal work. I love all sorts of metal embossing and embellishing. You did such an amazing job on this card. I like it much better than mine :) It's so much fun to see how everyone is inspired and then be inspired myself from what I see! So glad you have been able to keep up with the challenge. The end is in sight!


  7. Oh, that's a lovely take on the tag - you've turned that foil dish into a work of art. The scouring makes such a difference, giving it a beautiful burnished look. Wonderful, Sally!
