Im Dreaming of a White Christmas....

Good Morning i was over the moon when the lovely Helen & Samantha from the ABC Christmas challenge asked me to stay on with them as a Guest DT member until February how lucky am i? So i just want to say a big big thank you to them for keeping me on as they are such lovely girls and its such a fabulous DT to be on thanks again.

So onto this fortnights challenge which has been chosen by Annie and the letter is W for Winter Wonderland and the optional extra of all White.

We are sponsored this fortnight by Simon Says Stamp and the prize is a $15 gift certificate

I was so excited when i saw the theme as ive always wanted to make a all white card but never got around to it so i really enjoyed making this card and i always struggle making a card for my husband and with there being no flowers on it lol and ive gone for blue for the image ive decided this is his Christmas card this year. I know theres a bow on it but i wont tell if you wont lol.

Ive coloured this adorable Penny Black image in with Promarkers then used faded jeans distress ink for the background and added stickles. Ive used a mixture of pearl white card and white glitter card which has been embossed using both swiss dots and snowflake cuttlebug embossing folders. The snowflakes are punched out with my MSP the ribbon and lace is from my stash and i finished of with stick on pearls and a pearl pin.

This card fits in with the following challenges:
