Tilda & Co Challenge 32 - Cold as Ice

I think I must be doing something right at the moment because cards are not taking me that long to make - everything is just falling into place!

The Tilda & Co Challenge 32 is

Cold as ice...
The sun is now drifting away very fast and soon it will be as cold as ice....
Using the colours Blue & white Only . Show us how cold your projects can feel this week.
The backing paper is from the beautiful Deep Blue collection from Vicki's blog and I printed it off so it would fit the cardstock perfectly. The pale blue snowflake backing card is a download from Mad About Cards (I think a freebie too) and is one I printed off last year with such good intentions and never used it! Tilda (from Jozza) has been coloured with watercolour paints and I've added a bit of silver glitter sparkle to her wings and shoes.

The snowflake is cut with my Sizzix die and from vellum with added white fibres around the points and a square blue blingy gem to hide the 3d foam pads underneath! The sentiment I found so I don't know where it came from and the ribbon threading overlay was sent to me by my fellow Funky Hand DT mate Kath. Blue grosgrain ribbon from my stash.

Tilda actually has a bit of a blue shiner - I was over zealous in daubing a bit of colour on her cheeks and must have had blue paint on my finger too! Ah well, its in keeping with the blue theme!
