Lavinias's Let it Snow

I made this card using Lavinia stamps, inspired by some of the beautiful design team work on their challenge this month. You can have a look at it here.

The challenge title is 'Let it snow' and, inspired by the DT, I had a go at creating a northern lights background. Seeing the Northern Lights in real life is one of the items on my bucket list, but for now I'll have to make do with making them up!

Thank you to Zoe for your advice on Northern Lights inking, Visit Zoe's blog here.

As the Lavinia challenge calls for just one entry per month, I now have to choose my favourite and I keep changing my mind!

Paper folding gift bag

This week I've had a go at following Neil's tutorial from the craft barn blog here. It is surprisingly quick and easy to do and now that I've done this one I reckon there'll be plenty more to follow!
This one was made with a paper from my stash. I added extra white brilliance ink to the to followed by some liquid pearls to make icicles. I made holes in the top with a little woodware star punch and tied silver ribbon on for handles.

I'd like to enter this in to this week's Craft barn challenge.
