Bah Humbug Challenge 29 - Paper Tearing

It is my final week as Guest Designer for the Bah Humbug Challenge so I would like to thank the lovely ladies over there for making me so welcome and for all the lovely comments on my cards.  I have scheduled this post so hope it has appeared.  I should be down south as this is posting as we are dropping our daughter Emily off at the Sonisphere Festival at Knebworth and then calling to see my sister in Cirencester on the way back.

The challenge this week is 'Paper Tearing'.  I have made this simple card by matting and layering a piece of pale blue card onto silver mirri.  Then I have torn a piece of white card and added it to the bottom for the snow and then also torn a piece of tracing paper and layered that over the white card.  I have added glamour dust to the torn edges for the snowy effect.  The snowman is a silver peeloff stuck onto white card, painted with the pearly paints from 'The Works' with irridescent medium used instead of water to sparkle it up even more.  Sentiment is a See D greeting.  Finished off with simple snowflake peel offs and a snowflake brad.
