Count Your Winter Blessings

This card was born from an old button!  When we were in the USA recently our friends took us to an Antique Fair because they love picking up all sorts of collectables.  I wasn't too sure about it but it was a beautiful day and we could just browse so no harm done.  One of my recent "spur of the moment" purchases had been some Pebeo paints although I hadn't been brave enough to play.  I started looking round at the fair for old cheap things I could use to "play on" and I found some big buttons.  Well having created a "new button" I needed something to do with it and today's Speedy Fox and Friends challenge to use circles got me started.
The large snowflake is made with Spellbinders dies, carefully assembled and then sprayed with glimmer mists and perfect pearls.  The large button was added to the centre.  The card base was sponged with two shades of ink through a mask - I used Memento Lulu Lavender and Adirondack Eggplant.  The sentiment from MFP Snow Gifts was stamped in Memento Elderberry.

I am entering this card in 3 challenges
Speedy Fox and Friends - use Circles
Stampin Sisters in Christ - handmade ( I hope it counts)
CCC12 - another one for September!

Thanks for checking this out and stopping by - hope you are having a great weekend.
