Whimsy November review

Hi everybody!!
Today is the review day for the Whimsy Stamps November release. Now I have been a bad Special Guest designer... I have completely missed the release until now. But I hope to make it up a little with this project, I used a lot of new gorgeous Whimsy products on it :).
First of course, gorgeous Berry by Wee Stamps. I totally adore this little lady. You'll notice that I didn't color her berries red like you would expect but I decided to make them nice and golden. The base of the project is a white star shaped picture frame, I have used a little bit of distress ink on the white, stamped the new gorgeous Snowflake Background on it with clear embossing ink, added golden embossing powder and melted that. On the inside I took the wooden inside of the frame, distressed that with Walnut Stain ink, again stamped the Snowflake background on it and this time added white embossing powder and melted that. The blue sparkle is Stampendous Crushed Glass Glitter, I applied some Olba Glue here and there and sprinkled the crushed glass flakes into the glue.
The sentiment is from the new Snowflake Mini Letter Seals. and the snowflakes are pieces of a strip cut with the new Snowflake Border Die, a little distressed and with a pearl on top :). The ribbon on top is from stash and the berries are Magnolia. I got the star shaped picture frame at a Dutch store named Blokker.
A second picture. I couldn't get a picture that I was really satisfied with (you can see the weather isn't very good here) so I figured I'd show you the two best ones.
A close up of gorgeous Berry. As always colored with Copic Markers and completely 3D paper pieced.
And the little pieces that make gorgeous Berry and her kitten. Lots of little pieces :).
