Moving Along With The Times 'Shrink Plastic' Challenge

Good morning all, I am so not enjoying this change of weather we are having.

Today see's a new challenge at Moving Along With The Times and Shell set us the challenge of 'Use Shrink Plastic' now this really was a challenge for me as you will see in the photo below and Shell's name was changed to something not so pleasant for setting this challenge lol, sorry Shell.

Here are my 5 attempts at making this charm for my card using the shrink plastic and then embossing it.
As you can see the first two never even got to the embossing part and then the next two got embossed but not very well until finally I managed to get one that resembled something of a charm!

Anyhow here is my card with the charm added using the sketch from Sunday Sketch & Stamp.
6" Square Card Blank - Boyes
Card Stock - Bazzill
Designer Papers - Kaisercraft 'Tis The Season'
Image - Lili Of The Valley 'Three Little Angels'
