Craft-Dee BowZ inspiration project ....Mittens

Hi all
Tracey here with my Monthly  Craft-Dee BowZ post.The theme for the DT this month is Christmas..so I have created this cute card using all my favourite techniques for you
The beautiful large teal flower was sent to me to work with this month so I based my whole colour scheme / design around that adding silver for an accent colour.
I used an 8x8 embossing folder from embossaliscious for the background. The mittens stamp and sentiment stamps are from Chloe designs. I embossed all the details with my heat gun and silver  wow powder. The frame around the mittens is a die from spellbinders. The snowflakes embossing folder that the mittens sit on is by cuttlebug.
The ribbon is from my stash. and I used my Trusty Craft-DeeBowZ Bow making tool .It creates stunning bows time after time with ease....
