A Gem of a Challenge ~ WOW

Good morning

It's time for a new challenge at A Gem of a Challenge and the lovely Jackie is hosting again and she has chosen White on White!  This is the first time I have made a WOW card and to be honest I did struggle but got there in the end.  Not the best example of a WOW card but if you pop over to the challenge blog you can see some truly stunning cards and a few sneak peeks of the new Christmas stamps which should be available to buy from Pink Gem Designs in the next week or so :-) 

I have used Ice Skating Chloe and a sentiment from the Let It Snow A7 sentiment sheet.  I made the poinsettias with a Marianne Creatables die, added a few stamens to the centres and sprayed with Spray & Sparkle (iridescent) available from Crafter's Companion.  I am really pleased with how these turned out:-)  The embossed background has also been sprayed for extra shimmer.
