Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge

It is time for a new Weekly Challenge over at Joan's Gardens.  Please go over to her blog to check out all the details.

I used the Sizzix "Snow & Trees" embossing folder for the background on this card.  This is a 5.5" x 6" card so I added the Memory Box "Frosty Border" die cut down the left side of the card.  In the center of the new Marianne Design "Anja Oval", I placed a portion of the new Nellie Snellen "Snowman" embossed design.  I used the largest of the Spellbinders  "Classic Ovals"  Nestabilities to cut out an oval frame then placed it inside the "Snowman" embossing folder to get the snowman image.  These folders are large enough to complete a whole card front with the design but it is fun to be able to use just portions of them too.   I used aqua glitter around the outside edge of the embossed oval.

On the left side of the oval I added the Marianne Design tree that was also covered with aqua glitter.  Under the pretty silk bow I used two of the Memory Box "Tilth Floral" dies, offsetting the loops to make it fuller.  The box was added with a glue dot.  

I hope you will join us in our challenge this week.
