Crimbo Crackers Challenge 33 - White On White

It's time for another Crimbo Crackers challenge and the theme this fortnight is:

White On White

I will allow a tiny bit of colour plus gold or silver!

I've used a Penny Black stamp - Fantasy - that I bought with a gift voucher I won from Simon Says Stamp in the summer and my intention was to make a large batch of Christmas cards with it to send to family.  And I never did - just ran out of time!  So shamefully, this is the first time its seen ink!

I decided to heat emboss and used some silver powder that I bought when I was making my Wedding invitations around 13 years ago!  And the embossing pad that I use is still farm fresh and not in the slightest dry! 

I'm not sure if its me or if the tree looks a little wonky - I've always thought that the trunk should be straight but looking at it here I'm not sure!

Anyway!  I've layered it onto some silver card I found in my stash and had to add the ribbon (Lidl) carefully to hide the join.  The snowflake charm is a recent purchase (Amazon voucher so it does not really count!) from the Bead and Button Company - be warned - they have a lot of stuff that could jump into your basket!

Three half pearls from my stash and edging of the image and card with stickles and the card is complete!

I've just eaten a cinnamon jelly bean.  Teach me not to look at the flavours before I shove them in my mouth.  Bring back Root Beer flavoured beans too I say!  And McDonalds in the UK too!!!

Good luck with the challenge, for more details, pop over to Crimbo Crackers!
