Winter Wonderland Challenge


Hi girls. Great to have you here on by blog. Thanks for taking the time to call. I hope you enjoy my creations and find a bit of inspiration here. The weather is still confused about what it's supposed to be doing so there's nothing for it but to stay indoors and carft.
This is a slightly longer post today because I have gone overboard with the piccies The card was made to enter the current Winter Wonderland challenge which asks for an Easel card with Sparkle and Shine.
I used Lili of the Valley's "" and coloured it using my Copic Ciaos. The papers are from The Dovecraft 8x8 Designer Pad. The large snowflakes were cut from sparkly paper using a Martha Stewart punch. The photographs don't show the glitter very well but it is there. The photo above shows the front face of the card in close up and the one below shows the base.

The embellishments are all fron my stash. I enjoy making easel cards so I hope you like this latest offering. If you have a minute to spare I would be delighted if you left a comment to let me know what you think. You are all so encouraging and I love reading your ideas and opinions.
Love and Hugs,
