I'm So Sad!!

But only because it is my last GDT post for Softpencil this week.  I have so enjoyed being a Guest Designer for Elizabeth - she is a joy to work with and Kerry - thanks for all your help.
This week we had a beautiful image to work with called "We made a Snowman" and Kerry asked us to use: Something Glitter, Liquid Applique, Flock and Sparkles.  Well I have used all of those except the liquid applique because quite simply, I didn't have any.  So without further ado here is the card I made for this challenge:

I used the sketch over at Fab n Funky Challenges which I have shown below:

I started off with a brown/bronze piece of shiny card for the backing and added six brads as indicated by the sketch.  I backed the image onto a piece of "flocked" paper from a Laura Ashley collection and cut two contrasting pieces of "flocked" paper (also Laura Ashley) to place in the opposite corners.  I coloured the image using pencils.  I used liquid pearls (my substitute for liquid applique) for the snowman's hat and stickles for the snowflakes.  

I used white glitter for the snowman and some white shiny thread - Papermania Sparkling Trims - for the snow at the bottom.

I added gold stickles to the petals on three white flowers.....

.........and added a sentiment at the left of the image.  I would never normally have used these colours on BP/DP and only used them because of the "flock" aspect of the challenge - I'm glad I did though - I quite like them!  Hope you do to.
