#82 Ice ice baby.....

Many of our crafters join us from all corners of the world.
I've not posted for two weeks as my family have been out enjoying the world - well Majorca to be specific. We had a great time and loved every minute of some much needed family time together!

So today, some of you are enjoying sunshine while others are a tad chilly!!
In celebration of all weathers - our challenge over at Card crafters circle this week is to create your best winter or summer card.
Our sponsor is Michelle Perkett Studios
Here's my summer creation. You can find this chilled out little chick on Michelle's website :-)

You've seen aperture's before. But how about creating them as a feature on the inside of your card.
This one was done using Spellbinders Blossom Die. Cut the 2nd size down out of the card then use largest and 2nd together to die cut a frame to stick over the top.
The flower flourish is a lovely one I picked up from Art of Craft and it's from Crafts-Too.

Cut the flourish from blue paper first. Then re-cut just the flower head from two papers. Curl the petals and stick on top of your base. You could do lots of layers to create a beautiful 3D flower.

I recently had a good tidy up of my ribbons which has made them much easier to use!!
How about taking two tones of ribbon and making a double?
It makes the ribbon stand out even more and this card can take it :-)
Then it's just a case of gems and some much needed glitter!!
Incase you're wondering the punched border is Martha Stewart's 'doily'.
So, let's see what you create this week and whether you're feeling the heat or cooling off...
