Christmas Chaos at C4E

Hi and I hope all your Christmas preparations are going well, thankfully our challenge, this week at crafts4eternity is another Christmas themed challenge
"Christmas Chaos"
We would like to see anything with a Christmas theme, so I got the chance to add another card to my pile, be it a small pile.
My background has been made using my gelli plate with the snowflakes being made by pressing in Tim Holtz snowflake embossing folder which has given a very subtle snowflake impression.
You might see it better here
the rest of the card is made up of several die cuts. I started by cutting into the card with Tims on the edge snowflakes which required a bit of precision cutting
other dies include Sizzix let it Snow sentiment
Spellbinders 2011 snowflake pendant
Alterations mini snowflake rosette strip die.
All have had a rough painting of Patina blue and some rock candy distress glitter.
A piece of blue burlap and a bit of bling in the centre finish this card off.
As we are all in the throws of our festive makings why not show us what you have made and join in with us for this weeks challenge.
I would also like to enter this card into this weeks challenge at
Make My Monday - Frosty Theme
