Anything Goes with an Option of Torn Paper at Papertake Weekly

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends.
Apologies for my late DT post - I thought I had scheduled it but when I checked not only had I not scheduled it - I hadn't even written it - oopsss!!!

So better late than never I'm here to share my DT make for the new challenge over at 

As it's the first Tuesday of the month that means we have our usual theme of

with the optional theme of 

I was recently very lucky to have won a prize over on the LOTV Facebook Page and I chose the fabulous Christmas Icons clear stamp set and here's what I have done with them for this week's challenge:

I started by randomly stamping the various snowflakes onto white card using Perfect Medium and then heat embossed with True White EP
Then I blended Broken China Distress Ink all over and wiped over the snowflakes with a soft towel to 'polish' them :o)
I decided to play with the optional theme of  'Torn Paper' and tore a piece of white card to create a snowy hill - which I then embossed with Sizzix 658285 Dots embossing folder.
Tree image also stamped using Perfect Medium and heat embossed with True White EP then 'fussy cut' and stuck using foam pads - a few tiny pearls added 
Sentiment from the Christmas Icons set too - same heat embossed with True White and Broken China Distress Ink blended all over.
A touch of Glamour Dust added around the edges to finish it all off.

Our wonderful sponsor this week is
