Sparkly Winter Time ...

Hello ... I'm struggling with time today ... so much to do ... I swear this house is like the Forth Bridge ... you start to paint (and decorate)  ... and just as you get to the end .. the beginning needs doing again! 
Anyway I wanted to pop in with a card I did for the challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room this week ... 
"Winter Wonderland" here's the photo inspiration ...



It's such a lovely theme picked by Cathy who is hosting this week ... and the DT cards are lovely ... I think maybe I should have done a snowy scene but this speaks to me of sparkle and icicles ...
 my card has been a nightmare to photograph due to weather conditions ... so I have a lot of pictures to share just so you can see the brightness and sparkle perhaps a little better


I glittered a doily and stitched my paper onto it ... this paper is actually a free Basic Grey January desktop from The Digichick ... which I love and thought so appropriate


My flower is made from glittery Christmas tissue paper ... which I then attached to satin ribbon and some tulle ... can you see the crystal icicle?


My snowflake is cut from white felt and also glittered ... and has a pretty crystal centre ... I also added those pretty pearl sprigs ...


A little clear sentiment backed with white card finishes the card ...


Now I really need to dash ... But before I do ... Thank you Stella for my blog award ... 
I will post it as soon as I get a chance ...
Till soon

Gorgeous card, Ros. what a beautiful photo to make a card from. I love the flower and the little bits as well as the snowflake and the colors! My winter is sunny right now! But I am enjoying the weather.

Your sparkly cards are so sweet.

It does one good, does it not, to get the sparkle out and have a bit of a bling time?

They really are very pretty!!
