Let it Snow ~ Creative Embellishments December Challenge

It's December 1st, which means a new challenge is up on the Creative Embellishments Blog. Here is this month's inspiration photo and the twist for this challenge is to use a border on your project.
I just loved this month's inspiration photo and have taken my inspiration from the colours and the glistening snowflakes to create this layout.
I've used an older Bo Bunny collection for this layout (Midnight Frost) because the colours were just perfect for the inspiration image and I promised myself that I would start using up my stash! I started off by whitewashing the dark blue background with some watered down gesso and layering some torn pieces to look like snow hills. I've used the CE Snowflake Stencil along with some white modelling paste on the blue background paper - and once the modelling paste was dry, I added some silver stickles to the snowflakes for a bit of sparkle. I also used the larger of the Snowflake Borders, the Falling Snow Set, and the Let it Snow title - I primed all these pieces with White Gesso and then embossed them with Stampendous Winter Wonderland Embossing Powder. I also added some Silver Stickles to the chipboard snowflakes. The embellishing for this layout was finished off with some tattered cheesecloth and silver sequins. 

I hope you will play along with this month's challenge and that you have a wonderful holiday season!
