Let it snow raffia style!

Hey there bloggers,
Well over at gingersnaps the theme was to use raffia and I will admit is rugged with this a little as it is not something I would usually use..so I decided to continue with snowy makes and add raffia?! So here she is..
I started by making a distress ink background and stamping Tim snowflakes onto it in same colour, then I stamped some in darker broken china on the right and script stamp on the left, then spritzed with perfect pearls in pearl.Once dry I added pearly dots to snowflakes centres.I added three strips of raffia, then added some pre-made  pearly glittered snowflakes, with pearly dot centres.
To finish I added some vintage  cream ribbon down the side, a big bow..something different for me! and two hat pins....having a  ball making these!

This is another made ages ago waiting to be blogged card.
