TIOT Challenge Anything Goes Take to the Skies

This is my DT card, I was planning simple after a suggestion from Dee, and it may look simple but it was a jiggle to get it to line up, but as I like the finish card, I will have to do further jiggling to create more.  Dee said taking to the skies was the Snowman and as she had bought the CD from CC I decided to use it.  The card design was from Nicky of Polka Doodles, it basically a 6 by 6 inch square card basically scored at about 1.5 cm from the fold line on both sides and  then theses 3 score lines are folded to make a M shape.
The papers are printed from the CD with the aperture cut by an oval spellbinder die after the paper was applied. The image and sentiment are rubber stamped and coloured with pro markers, there are liberal amounts of glitter but the photo does not show it to well.
Here is a close up of the image.
The image was cut out and suspended by acetate, so it looks like the snowman is flying.  Have a good week.  Hugs Bee

World cardmaking challenge on LOTV

LOTV  ideas to inspire are having a challenge on there site for world card making day.  I have made a card specially for it and also as a birthday card, I am a little worried it is OTT but it was fun to do.
The stamp image is a 'sassy' little lady found here at Lilli of the Valley she is called Feather Boa I coloured her in various pro markers orange and mounted her on a die cut made by putting two die together to get the cut out.shape.  The feathers are an old die which shouted feathers to me but maybe they are leaves trying to think outside the box, the black gems are from my stash and the paper was from a stamping class.  She is such Fun.  Thanks for looking Hugs Bee
