Cute Daisy May DT and a challenge

I'm really late posting my DT card today, been at the kids school all day getting some decorations made for the school fayre.and forgot to post it when I got home. I found some nice snowflake decorations that were easy to make on the internet the other day so I made some of those. Will show pics of them another time though.
I still need to make loads of stuff and do lots more cards but at least I have started now.

The challenge over at Cute Daisy May this week is "Red Christmas", so that's one more made for the Christmas box :)
I entering this card to Stampin For The Weekend as I followed their sketch.

I made this card at the last minute last night and took the pic before the twinklets had dried properly, so the flower doesn't look so white anymore, you can see the red a bit more through the twinklets.
The papers are Stampin Up and the scallopedoval is a digi element by Summer Driggs.
The sweet image is of course a Cute Daisy May and I paper pieced her clothes. AfterI had cut her clothes out, I stamped over them with an Anna Griffin backgrouns stamp with Versamark and heat embossed with vlear embossing powder. I also stamped some tiny snowflakes on her jacket with some distress ink, but you can't realyy see any of that in the pic. It looks nice irl though. Gives it a bit of texture and make her clothes look like they have a subtle pattern. The rest of the image is coloured with Copics.
The sentiment is a chipboard embelishment that I bought last year but can't remember where and the ribbon, spacer, brad and pearls are all from my stash.
Well I'm off now in search of some large snowflake shapes for the Christmas Fayre.
