Frilly & Funkie Step x Step-Let It Snow

Good morning friends, I am sharing this weeks Step x Step over at Tje Frilly & Funkie Blog.  I am sharing some of the gorgeous and shabby Melissa Frances embellishments.  I adore snowflakes and Melissa Frances has some chipboard snowflakes that you embellish yourself(they are sold out now), so sweet! 

 I wanted them to have script/sheet music on them, so I covered them with gesso and then smoothed out the sheet music onto them and then carefully lifted the paper off.

This is right after I lifted the paper, I was not worried about the edges; it does not have to be perfect to be shabby.  I want to distress the ends anyway with ink, so bare cardboard will be covered in a shabby fashion.    

I also covered them with Tim Holtz glitter and then I added  the Melissa Frances paper garland to the center; and yes it is pink!  A little more frilly and girly.

I completed my card with more goodies from the Funkie Junkie Boutique, the lace trim, 
Melissa Frances Chrismtas Flashcards , and the pink ribbon.  The pink ribbon is what some of my goodies where wrapped in when I placed my order, I surely can't waste it...teehehehe.  The pink jingle bells I also made, spray painted them and covered them in Glossy Accents, and the Tim Holtz glitter.   I am so luvin the pink, a true frilly..*grin*.  Have a super day and be sure to stop by The Funkie Junkie Boutique and pick up your Melissa Frances goodies today!
