The Paper Shelter Challenge #270 Pearls/Gems

Good Morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week we would like to see you use pearls and/or gems on your project. I went with a winter theme using the gorgeous Hope and I also used lots of goodies from the Crafteezee Collection too.

I just love this image: it's so soft and serene and perfect for wintery cards! I used lots of Shabby Blue Frantage on the snowflake die cuts and they look so pretty in real life!
