ABC Christmas Challenge - W & X

Time for another challenge over at the ABC Christmas Challenge and this time Carissa is the host.  This month the themes are -

'W for White  
'X for X marks the spot'.  

Our sponsor this month is -

and the prize is an A5 clear stamp set 'Winter Cottages'

There's also a prize from Carissa

My 'W for White' card.  Not a particularly good photo I'm afraid, but it's the best of a bad bunch.  I simply layered up die cuts from a 'Spellbinders 2012 Snowflake Pendant Die' and then added pearls.  I say "simply", but I'd forgotten how hard it was to get the card out of those dies!  Not to mention also having to poke out the wee bits that stay stuck in the small holes.  I eventually had a bit of success by using greaseproof paper between the card and dies, but I'm getting myself some of that ejection/quick release foam as soon as is humanly possible!
