I'm dreaming of a white Christmas ...


The image is from LOTV and I coloured it with a Neutral Grey inktense pencil then used a tiny amount of water to blend.  The background is embossed  and layered onto silver mirror card

 I added some Silver Glacier Satin Ribbon, topped with a 23mm diamante snowflake embellishment and a bow made from silver twine


For my flower arrangement I used RG white beaded twirls, Kort & Godt white chrysanth, WOC white sweetheart blossoms and hip rosebuds, an ivory gardenia and a stem of RG white beaded stamens.

I'm entering this card into the Cute Card Thursday challenge


Ribbon, twine, diamante embellishment, flowers, twirls are all from

see you soon Mary x

This is amazing. I have only ONE time in my life done an image in grays rather than color and wasn't thrilled with it. I look at this card and feel like I'm back in the 1920's and this is an old photograph. It's colored perfectly to replicate photos from my Dad's era. Awesome! Hugs, Gail
