Something Different

Hi girls. Thank you for coming in to visit my blog. I am so pleased to have you here and I hope you find your visit worthwhile. I hope you are all keeping well and that those of you in the UK are surviving the snow and the bitter cold. We have had a big thaw here and are down to our last few inches of snow but the temperatures are still freezing.
Today's card was made without any challenges in mid and was a meant as a distraction from the mad rush to finish my Christmas cards. It's not quite my usual style but I enjoyed making it. The image is one of the Lili of the Valley large Square Fairies and I used vellum as a backing because I thought it matched well. The flowers are by Wild Orchid and I used gold gilt and glitter on the edge of the fairy mount.
I hope you like it and that you will be able to find time to leave a comment. I so enjoy reading what you have to say and value your opinions.
I hope that as you start your week that you stay safe and warm and enjoy good health.
Love and Hugs,
