Fabulous Friday - Winter Birthday

Happy Friday.  Hubby has been away in the UK, this week, helping his brother move their Mum to a new place.  He comes home tomorrow - yay!

We are into inspiration week for our challenge at Polkadoodles and the current theme is Winter Birthday.

I chose to use papers and a sentiment from the wonderful Studio 12 Picknix 2 - Gingerbread Twist collection.  I also had to use the Mojo Monday Sketch from their challenge this week.


I love this sentiment.  I added a small square faux shaker element and then added a plain metal snowflake from my stash.


All the layers were distressed and inked up.  There are little tiny stars in the shake element.

For the inside I used the same papers as the front and a sentiment from another Polkadoodles collection Fredericka.  It's always good to look through the older collections because you never know what you might find :-)


I love these papers and it shows that snowflakes aren't just for Christmas :-)


I added a little foam tape to the back of the shaker element to raise it up a little and then finished off the front with some pearl dots.


Now it's your turn to get creative and enter our Winter Birthday challenge over at Polkadoodles.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.
