Clean & Simple at Allsorts

Good morning. Well can you believe that it's Saturday again already - where did that week go???  more to the point where has this month disappeared too??? It will be Christmas before we know it :-)

So as it is Saturday that means it's time for a new challenge over at 
and this week my lovely teamie Amanda (aka Scotspanda) wants us to keep it

So here's my take on it:

I started with a cream pearl DL base card and scored the bottom half at 1cm intervals - using my  Scorpal.
I added some thin shimmery ribbon across the top of the score lines and then made two teeny tags for the sentiment which I attached with a teeny bow.

The snowflake was created using a stencil and embossing paste and then a liberal sprinkling of some scrummy Cosmic Shimmer Sparkly Glitter whilst the paste was still wet. I mat and layered this onto some red mirri card and then added it to the centre top of the base card. 

 Here's a close-up of the scrummy snowflake:
 And here's the sentiment tags:

We have a fab prize up for grabs from our sponsor
