Cool Birthday

Hi peeps!

For the first time in a looong while, I've made a card "just for fun", and not as a DT project :)
I found a great sketch at the Sugar Bowl Challenge #50, and it was so fun to play with!
I wanted to make the card look "cold" and glittery in pink and grey colours, and this is how it turned out.

Size: 15 x 15 cm
Ink: Archival Ink - Coffee, DistressInk - PumiceStone & Victorian Velvet, Water Mark Ink Pad.
Stamps: Sugar Nellie - image, Lili of the Valley - text (not in store).
Colouring: Distress Ink - Refills (mainly Pumice Stone and a mix of Spun Sugar & Dusty Concord).
Papers: Memory Box - Gossamer Collection, Bazzill - white & pink cardstock, Canson - Montval aquarellpaper 200g.
Tools: Spellbinders - Nesting Label, Cuttlebug - Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, EK Success - Snowflake punch, StampinUp! - Word Window punch, Martha Stewart - Scandinavian Snowflake punch, Inkido - Frost Embossing Powder, Heat Gun.
Embellishments: Wild Orchid Crafts - Open Paper Roses 20 mm, 15 mm & 10 mm, Semi Open Roses 8 mm, Rosebuds 4 mm, Aster Daisies, Gypsophilas & Self Adhesive Pearls, Ranger - Stickles "Star Dust" (I luv this glitter glue), lace.
I've used Dry Embossing on the white panels, and Heat Embossing on the snowflakes.

Thanks for peeking in - have a great weekend!
Hugs, Lena Katrine :)
