Flakes- It is time for another challenge at Creative Card Crew. This time we are looking for snow and ice. Really fun for this time of year. One of my Aussie friends was very clever to make it fit the fact that it is summer, down under. She has ice cream on her card! I really chuckled when I seen it.

My disigner papers are GCD Ella Blue. I stroked this pad of paper every time I went into Hobby Lobby for over a year before I broke down and bought it. I really enjoy using it.

My image is one of our sponsors image. We are sponsored by Stamp Fairy and my image is George 1. I colored George with Copics. I added some chunky glitter to the snowflakes and ice patch. The image was cut with SB.

My iron end caps are also SB.

I tied the ribbon with my Bow Easy and added a snow flake to the top.

I used SU die and matching embossing folder to make the shaped cut on the dotted paper and sparkly card stock.
