Christmas Card Club - Feature Wings

It is Christine's @ Christine's Cards and Crafts turn to chose a theme for our fortnightly Christmas Card club. She chose Winged Creations and this one was really fun!

I am off to my Mum's house tomorrow, so needed to make my card ahead and auto schedule it...hope it works! This card was made at my weekly craft day with my neighbour....we made 3 cards and had a lot of fun. I made sure I added a winged creature as I had my looming club commitment in mind.

DP is Bella Blvd, Winter Wonder Blizzard...I quite like those multi-coloured snowflakes. Added another layer of what I think is MME blue dotted DP,  after carefully wrapping a snippet of dotted ribbon around it.

Lisa and I are good friends so she called the night before and asked me to cut some large glitter paper snowflakes...so these are Memory Box snowflakes. The gorgeous jewel in the center is from a package of jewels  that Lisa had in her stash. The little snowflakes are random ones from packages that have long since lost their labels. I added the wee owl embellishment as my "wings" commitment item and added the word JOY beside it. Joy is another ready cut embellishment from Lisa's stash.

Since I thought it all looked a little too plain, I added some small blue diamonds and tried to place them on every other snowflake tip and then placed the remainder a bit further down the flake. Couple more red diamonds on the sides and the front was done.


Inside is a sheet of matching card and a sentiment I cut off one of the Chritmas cards we received last year! I added a banner flag to tie in the DP from the front. I will skip the recipe as I have already listed all the ingredients in this post!
Here is a close up of the snowflake.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
1. Pixies Crafty Workshop - must use snippets
2. Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge Extra - Anything goes, as long as it is Christmas
3. Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge - must cover card front with paper

  15. Maureen, I love your cute little wing-y owl! He looks so chipper & ready to fly for Christmas in his little reds. That snowflake is breath-taking with the sparkle jewel and love all the tiny blue rhinestones trimming the outer parts. Just brings your eye right into that big blue jewel. Admiring the way you are continuing to keep your inside card all finished off too. It's very pretty. Enjoy your visit with your Mom. TFS & Hugs

  38. hi Maureen saw your comment on rachels welcome that you are having trouble following. Blogger seems to have a problem at the moment on some blogs.I managed to get round it by clicking on the
    'More Options' to the right of the follow button which took me to a further screen. At the lower left is another follow button which I clicked on and it then worked. Don't know why but you might like to try that way.
    Hugs Mrs A.
