Papertake Weekly #30

Well girls the snow is still here with us in Perthshire and it has a good grip. It has been snowing again today so we have a good thick covering. Very Christmassy. I'm beginning to get excited - the big day is only 4 more sleeps away.
I really fancied the sketch in this week's Papertake Weekly Challenge and this is my interepretation. I apologise that the light has been so bad here that I had to use flash to take the photograph and it's not up to normal standards but I hope it gives the idea. I used Rayher Hobby Gmbtt (blue/white) paper and Siver mirra card and stamped up Magnolia's "Tilda with Hearts" on Stampin Up Old Olive card. Tilda is coloured using my trusty Copic Ciaos. I used a Martha Stewart border Arch punch on green card to create a drape for the top of the image panel and tied a ribbon across the top of it. The flowers are handmade out off silver mirra card.
I would love to know what you think of this card and if you could spare some time to leave a comment I would be very grateful because I get so much enjoyment reading them. Do have a good run up to Christmas and enjoy your crafting.
Hugs,
