An Exciting Announcement - Tuesday Throwdown TT220

Morning all, I have an exciting announcement to make today.  I am proud and happy and delighted to tell you I am now on the design team over at Tuesday Throwdown and my first card for them is for challenge TT220 - A Shaped Card which has gone live today!  This challenge is sponsored by the brilliant Robyns Fetish and I have used here "Christie Angel" digi...

The snowflake is cut from the "Accent Essentials" Cricut cartridge and is most definitely my "go-to" snowflake, it's such a great shape.  I cut the shadow in silver mirror card and the top in white glitter card, both of which I have had stashed to use for a while.  This white glitter card was a shedder though, it's fair to say my cricut mat, work desk, my entire general work area and most of myself was absolutely covered in ultrafine glitter!  Shed central!  The letter is cut from the "Don Juan" cartridge.  I used my trusty Polychromo Pencils to colour her on white linen Papermill Direct card.  I glittered her wings with glamour dust on top of glossy accents.

Here's my Polychromo colour chart...

I am so excited to be a part of this lovely team and can't wait to show you more cards for them...pop over and check out the other brilliant designers, join in the challenge, and say hi!
