A Very "Grown Up" Christmas

Helloo my fellow bloggers. Been super busy at work so not so much crafty time and it's too dark at night for colouring :0(.
 However, I did get out some mica powders for a play last weekend and this was the result.


The centre of the stampendous stamp is framed perfectly by my favourite spellbinders fancy oval die so that was the starting point. I finally broke open my Silent Night papers (well it's ridiculous to just stroke and look at them really!!). 

I used Imagination Crafts mica powder mixed with water for the sky
and some pale blue and white seam binding for the bow.
Oh, nearly forgot the snowflake die too...Joy crafts if my memory serves me correctly.





I would like to play along at these challenges

Winter Wonderland - Blue and White
ALBC - Sparkle and Shine
Stamping Sensations - Christmas
Heck of a Challenge - In the Frame
Imagination Crafts #5 - Glitter & Sparkle
LEJ Designs #78 - Monochromatic

Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it xx
