Mo's dp2 challenge dt

I am still away, but making my way home by this time, with my bags bursting after the craft show at the NEC, will fill in all the details once i recover from the jetlag.

This week on Mo's challenge blog we want you to use acetate or velloum on your card, you can choose how to do it.  For my card i just had to use Kai in the snow available from Mo's store.
I colored Kai with my copics and was really not sure about this color scheme, but i am really happy with how the card came together.  I made a shaker bos out of foam core, or foam board, not sure what you would call it where you live.  i also used a Mdesign for the scalloped circle.  I found these ice crystals in my studio, dont actually know where i got them from, but decided they would do really well inside my shaker.

The snow flakes are made using various punches and layered together and then added a rhinestone to the centre.  I also added a good going over of lots of glitter to my card.
have a great crafting weekend
