The Craft Barn Challenge - Snowflakes

Winter arrived in Bedfordshire last weekend making this week's subject for the Craft Barn Challenge calling for snowflakes very apt.

I've made a Christmas card to add to my pile of ........two! I brayered a background PaperArtsy style and added some stencilled snowflakes. To make the branch, I die cut a swirl and chopped off some of the swirls and flower blossom. I covered where the flowers had been with die cut snowflakes. The owl was a left over from my November Craft Barn Calendar Challenge tag and I stamped, coloured and glittered a hat to keep him warm (well an ear, at least). I finished off by adding some glitter to the branch and bling on the snowflakes.
