What's on My Desk?

I would like to share my first project I created for the Crafty Card Gallery design team challenge of "What is on your desk?". For this challenge we couldn't go out and buy any scrapbook paper, embellishments or new stamps. The team had to use what we had on hand or on our desk. Since I have packed up almost all of my craft supplies I had to dig through boxes...I'm still in the middle of getting my dream craft/guest bedroom ready....once that is finished I will share photos :-)
Below is the card I created...


 I used a 7x6 inch piece of My Mind's Eye patterned paper which I folded in half to give me a 3 1/2 x 6 card. Since I always have scraps of cardstock and pattern paper laying around I cut various strips for the front of the card. I inked all of the edges with Versa Magic Dew Drop Chalk Ink  in Aquatic Splash and then adhered to the card front. Next I stamped the Inkadinkado snowman stamp with Versa Magic Dew Drop Chalk Ink in Sahara Sand and then cut the image out. For the snowflake I used chipboard and cut it out using my Sizzix snowflake die. I then inked it with Versa Magic Dew Drop Chalk Ink in Oasis Green. When it was dry I lightly Sprayed Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist in Pearl on the snowflake. Once dry I adhered the snowflake to the front of the card and then glue the snowman image to the corner of the snowflake. The finally touches I used some Prima swirly pearl bling...I'm not sure exactly what it is called but you get my drift and last but not less I added some Robin's Nest Dew Drops in Fresh Mowed Grass to bling up the snowflake.  
 

Please check out the other design teams blogs and see what they had on their desk too when you get a chance.
Thanks for looking and I hope this inspires you to create something fun and enjoy creating!!!
