Crafters Companion - Barkley

Hi Crafters,

What happened to yesterday?
I meant to post this yesterday but the time just got away from me, so here it is - one of my latest Christmas cards.
This is Barkley and Friends, a Christmas pre-coloured digi from a decoupage sheet and a great shaped card that I purchased from the NEC recently. I tried out my new snowflake die from Joy and glittered it up with Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Crystal Sparkle embossing powder, I've used this a lot lately, I love it. The sentiment is from a Dreamees set of stamps. Sorry the lighting is rubbish.
Here is a closer view...
... you can just make out the layers of decoupage.
And a nice close up of the snowflake and embossing.
As you can see Father Christmas really needs to bring me a new camera and a light box, I've been very good, promise. We will have to see, it could just be the photographer lol.

The glitter is calling, must dash,

Just beautiful and I love the image, it's sometimes great to use a precoloured. Love the die you've used, snowflakes with glitter always add some wonderful dimension to your work. Thank you for joining us at BMD. Good Luck and Merry Christmas. Jules xoxoxxo
