This week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room is Winter Wonderland, create a card or project with a winter theme. So I went with a frosty color scheme for my card, whites and cool blues. I added some vintage sparkly bling representing the iciness of winter, I love that sparkle when the sun hits frosty crystals in the morning!

I also made this with the Color Cue {11} at W Plus 9 in mind.

The pretty digital paper is from Timeless Victorian Papers from Raspberry Road Designs. It's such a lovely subtle pattern.

I used Spellbinders Labels 14 and teamed it up with Holiday Labels No.14 from Waltzingmouse Stamps stamped in a soft pink. The sentiment is from Fancy Phrases also from Waltzingmouse Stamps. The embossing folder I used is called cottage floral.

I cut two simple leaf shapes from the card I embossed and added them under the flower. The bit of bling I added to the centre of the flower is an old vintage clip on earring. I love how it looks so icy!!

Don't forget to check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the shabby girls!! This week's sponsor at The Shabby Tea Room is Lori Boyd - Lollipops.
