Celtic Snowflakes

Hi folks.

This card is for a couple of challenges. First the sketch, from Penny's Challenge. Lovely and simple design! Then at Bizzy Bec's they want 'Christmas, Snowflakes and Glitter'. My first time for this challenge, so I hope it will do.

Those circles on the sketch just cried out to be made into baubles, but I don't have any images of baubles, so decided to make my Celtic Snowflake image, available at Delicious Doodles, into one by putting it in reverse (white on black) on a black circle. Then I cut out some more and raised them up with a foam pad underneath. I framed the whole thing with a Celtic Knot Frame, and put the text on. All this was done on the computer, and then printed out. No messy bits!!

Last job was to finish the card. I dotted some silver glitter pen round each bauble, and daubed silver ink round the edges too, then added some metallic glittery ribbon bows, so I hope that will qualify for the 'glitter' bit. . .
