Winter Window

Hi everyone, last day of the school and working week for us here in Cairns.   The Cairns Show is on and Friday is a public holiday.  Hopefully, the weather stays beautiful so we can get out and about somewhere. No one is going to the show this year.  15 year old daughter thinks it is all just a waste of money.......who am I to disagree. :-)

I am back to my Christmas cards.

Today I started with a white base card then dug out my embossing folders.  The blue snowflake embossing I had in my stash from my friend Helen, I am sure.  The white squares on the side are a pearlised card which doesn't show in the photo.  I have used my Holly Leaves, Candy Stripe and Swiss Dots folders on these.   Added the gold ribbon.  The image is from Passion for Stamps called Winter Window.  I have had this is my collection for a long time now but never used it. I have coloured it with my Copic pens and a touch of gold metallic.  I then Kindy Glitzed the snow and used Dimensional Magic on the window panes.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

    Hope you have a nice long weekend. I have to agree re the local shows - they seem to be getting more expensive every year, and I don't know anyone who goes to our local show (Beenleigh) - but it is nice to get a day off!!
