"Like a snowflake" - Berry71bleu December challenge!!!

Hello ladies!!!

December is actually here!!! Time goes by so quickly!!
This is a busy time of the year for everyone!! 
So, why not take a break from all the craziness and play along with us at Berry71bleu???

This month's challenge is...

White Christmas!!!
 (or white winter for those that don't celebrate Christmas)
Create whatever you want as long as it has a white background as a base and is related to Christmas/winter

And this is what I have come up with using beautiful chipboard pieces from:

Who were kind and generous enough to sponsor our Design team with their beautiful products!!!

"Like a snowflake" by Vicky Varvadouka

I have used a few "Grafter's Workshop" stencils to create the background and a sizzix snowflake die which I used as a mask! The flowers and ribbon are all Green Tara and the papers My Mind's Eye.

I have used white heat embossing powder on the chipboard pieces and some stickles for sparkle!

Green Tara
I have used the beautiful Green Tara roses, gardenias, velvet leaves, jute ribbon, flower lace and that big gorgeous white fabric flower!!!! I admit it...I am totally in love with GT products!!!

Materials used:
Papers: My Mind's Eye
Flowers, leaves, ribbon and lace: Green Tara
Chipboard: Wysinanca
Stencils: The Crafter's Workshop
Distress inks, glimmer glam, stickles: Ranger

Our sponsor from Poland -  13 @rts were very generous and offered a beautiful paper collection for our winner this month!!! We are also offering our Merit Winner an opportunity to Guest Design on our blog too!
