Lots of Challenges

Hi everyone. Hope you are all well. I have had a very boring week this week. First I have had to wait in four days for workmen to carry out repairs - why can't they just do it properly the first time - or, why can't they just turn up when they are supposed to - grrrr! Anyway, had to take up two pairs of curtains and make a cushion so I've been kept busy whilst waiting, lol! Also, got the chance to make this card today.

I followed Jacqui's tutorial over on Whiff of Joy Inspiratinal and Tutorial Blog. I know my image isn't WOJ but I wanted to make a card in that style. I have coulured my image with distress inks and have added lots of stickles. Have also added white Flower Soft to make the snow at the bottom. The papers are my new Eskimo Kisses from Basic Grey. Had them a while now but not used them yet. The flower is from Craftwork Cards. Used Jacqui's flower method too, lol. Think it makes them stand out so much better. Have added a pearl brad to the centre and added stickles to the end of each petal. The sentiment is from a Habico Clear Stamp Set as are the wee corner stamps which are coloured with watercolour paints and stickles. I have added wee gems to each corner of each piece.
I have taken a few close up pics to give a better view of the card:

Now, I can enter this into quite a few challenges, I think - which is just as well because there are lots I want to enter and not enough time to make a seperate card for each one, unfortunately!
So, here goes:

1. Sketch and Stash - A Sketch and New Papers.
2. Secret Crafter - Easel Card.
3. Charisma Cardz - Merry and Bright.
4. Cute Card Thursday - Glitter me silly.
5. Crazy 4 Chaellenges - Easel Card.
6. Crafty Catz - Going Dottie.
7. Cupcake Craft Challenge - Snow Much Fun.

Phew! Hope I never missed any, lol! A couple of these are new challenges for me but there is lots of inspiration on from the design teams so I will be joining in again.

Hope you like my card. Thanks for looking.
