Something old, something new!

This is a technique I haven't tried before, it's called a Raised Frame card and I 'borrowed' the idea from Stamp TV.
The 'old' thing is my Cuttlebug Swiss dots embossing  folder and the 'new' element is the SU stamps, which were inked for the first time today.
The blue is a little tricky, but if you look incredibly closely, you might just see a little 'blue' twinkling in the Stickles, which I added to the snowflake.
The tiny bit of DP visible is Bits of Ivory from Cuddly Buddly.
The challenge is from Creative Belli.
We had a great time in London on Wednesday and saw none of the violence which erupted that day.
Oliver was outstanding and the the meal at Bel Canto was brilliant. The singers were superb!
We arrived home around midnight, tired but contented after a great day out!
