Melt my heart like April Snowflake!

Hello .... still off work today and not feeling great - slept till nearly 11.30 am so I must have been feeling bad! Just managed to sit down for an hour or two to make a card to take my mind off it. I recently bought a few new (to me!) Sugar Nellies including this adorable Christmas stamp "Snowflake" - as my target of one Christmas card per week is currently running about 13 weeks behind I thought it might be good to reduce the deficit lol!

This card is for the new Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge - loved this week's sketch. My card is actually quite a lot more sparkly than the picture shows, but I guess that's English springtime for you (April showers and all that ...very dull here today!)

Main image: Sugar nellie "Snowflake", watercoloured and decorated with Glamour Dust;
Sentiment: Penny Black;
Paper: BasicGrey "Figgy Pudding";
Supplies: White pearlescent card punched with MS "Scalloped Dot" punch; snowflakes die cut using Cuttlebug small snowflakes die; ribbon and gems from my stash.

Just off to put my feet up now and have a cup of tea ... hope you are all having a good day.
