Allsorts challenge 19

This weeks Allsorts challenge chosen by Kirsten really reminds us that perhaps we should be thinking about making those Christmas cards as her theme is Snowflakes in September. Endless possibilities here to get your creative juises flowing.

For my DT card I have used a new set of clear stamps Penny Black 30-035 In a Pear Tree, together with some new double sided DP's from S.E.I. called Winter Song which really have to be stroked to appreciate the flocking and foiling. I stamped the little birdie twice.......I figure he is actually the partridge from the pear tree......with brilliance red onto Bazzil cardstock, decoupaged him added diamong glaze and Swarovski crystals for his eye and tail feathers. The snowflakes have been cut on Cricut Christmans Cheer and Accent Essentials from the same colour bazzil and acetate then crystal glitter added to the acetate ones. The sentiment is from the same PB set. The border is punched from Martha Stewart Embossed Snowflakes.
