Oldie but a Goodie Challenge - Handmade Embellishments

We have a new Oldie but a Goodie Challenge starting today...and the theme is:

'Handmade Embellishments'

I used a Marianne Designs die to cut a felt snowflake...which is held in place using a gemstone brad from Craft Obsessions. The image is 'Snowman' by Lili of the Valley...which I coloured using watercolour pencils...adding some sparkle to the snow using some Stickles. For the background, I embossed some plain white card using a Sizzix embossing folder. The twine is from the Ribbon Girls.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Oldie but a Goodie Challenge.
