Only another week to go and the over-indulgence day will be upon us. Hope you're all prepared, but if not my motto is you can always try again next year.
Before I get on with my card I see that another shop is closing due to the new EU VAT rules - this time it is Sylvia Zet and the Wee digi-stamps - but hopefully only temporarily. You can read about it on her blog here and also she is giving a 10% discount in case you want to add some more digis to your collection (which of course I did).
So onto my card - I decided to do something a bit different for me and have a play with stencilling. This is 'garden birch landscape' from Memory Box which I cut to a square and matted onto some blue card. I ripped a strip of card for the snow and the cute little bambi which I coloured with Promarkers is from Wild Rose Studio. A large amount of Stickles was addded to the tree branches and snowy ground and after adding the Tattered Lace snowflake with a gem centre I attached the 'winter scene' to a hammered card base.
There is a lot more glitter than shows in the photo and also the 'snow' is a lot whiter.
I shall enter this in the following challenges -
Stamping Sensations challenge 'winter wonderland'
