CD Sunday - 'Sprinkle of Snowflakes' - chosen by Wynn

Hopefully any snowflake sprinkles at this point in time will only be on cards entering our challenge. We had a few more entries last time which was great to see and one of those who entered used to be a fellow teamie. Thank you Caz for joining in with us.
As it was my challenge choice last time  I will be choosing my Top 3 in time for the next posting.
Now for a 'Sprinkle of Snowflakes'.  I decided to make a parchment card using an image given to us at a lesson by our Tutor.  This lesson was practice in using a black brush pen and some Glamour dust.  A very simple understated design but I think you will agree - very effective.  The edging was simply done with a small scallop tool and then I sewed it to the backing card with tiny white frosted beads.
The snowflake /snowball backing card came from one of my favourite CD sources - Carol Ann's Studio  A couple of sparkly snowflakes and a silver sentiment completes the card.

 I look forward to seeing you in my travels.  I think Wynn has chosen the right theme for this challenge period as everyone must be making Christmas cards at the moment.  Just have any something - big or small - from a CD on it and you can enter our challenge.


  1. What a lovely card Carol , you must have a lot of patience and skill , i do agree with snow being on cards, winter is not my favorite time.

    Sewing all the beads on must have taken a while but a really lovely effect

  3. A gorgeous card Carol, how patient you are sewing the beads around the edge, they look great.

  4. Beautiful card Carol the beads must have taken ages to sew on, but add to the feeling of snow falling

  5. A beautiful card Carol, so pretty and delicate as always.

  6. Love the scene you've created and sewing on tiny beads is an inspiration!! Guess no one likes snow in the UK but I love it and miss it lol xx

  8. Grr, the snow is not just on the cards this neck of the woods, we awoke on Sunday to a Christmas card scene! Luckily for us it's now all but gone, and hopefully it's not a sign of things to come. Anyway, back to your lovely card. It really is pretty, lots of techniques I'm not sure of but I love the end result. Thank you so much for your lovely comment on my blog, Jx
