GDT at Creative Craft - Buttons & Bling

I've got some exciting news to share with you today, because I'm a guest designer for Creative Craft Challenges for a month.

Creative Craft Challenges are being sponsored by Love to Stamp and The Crafty Pad so there are some great prizes up for grabs if you join in this fortnight's theme of Buttons and Bling.

I'm also excited because it has given me an opportunity to play with a new StampFairy image that had been on my wish-list for a while.  He is Barry Winter, and I've used 2 images from the adorable set, because as with most of my favourite cards, I've got carried away and decorated the inside of the card too.

I've added the bling in the form of gems where the snowflakes are, and the buttons are actually spotty, so they look like more snow. I also added a lot of stickles and glitter glue, although it doesn't show up much in the pic.

Here's the front of my card :

And here's the inside, with an added sentiment using a snowflake font :

Card Recipe:
  • Image -  Barry Winter from Stamp Fairy

I hope to see you all join in the challenge, and please pop over to the Creative Craft challenge blog to see the other fab designs by the other DT members and join in the Buttons and Bling challenge this fortnight.
