Charisma #42 plus Creative Card Crew

This is my DT card for this week's Charisma challenge (apologies for the wonky photo!) and it's my turn to set the challenge, I went all out on a limb and said no backing papers to be used! Eeek! Now I love my papers as much as the next girl, but quite often in my Stampin' Up! classes we make cards without using papers and it's quite good to do something a little different from time to time! So I hope I haven't scared you off too much and you'll join in with us this week.

I'm also entering my card into the Creative Card Crew challenge, which this week had the theme of "Snowflakes" - think I've got that one covered!

My card is mainly using SU! except for the snowflakes which I cut out on a Cricut - not mine - sadly, a friend has lent me hers for a play and oh boy, it's love! Don't tell my Craft Robo though!

Stamp - Season of Joy
Ink - Elegant Eggplant
Cardstock - Elegant Eggplant; Bordering Blue
Ribbon - Whisper White, re-coloured with Elegant Eggplant marker

Non SU:
Snowflake embossing folder
Cardstock for snowflakes
Diamante - from my stash

Hope you can join this week, there's a fab prize on offer!
