A touch of frosty loveliness ..................

.................... I do so love it when the world looks like it's been brushed with dazzling diamonds and walking in 'my' field inspired me to create this little card using another lovely set from Stampin' Up! - Winter Post - together with the sentiments from Contempo Christmas.

It's using Not Quite Navy - a non-traditional colour for Chrismas - together with Bashful Blue and Whisper White cardstock and Not Quite Navy ink with a hint of sparkle from our Dazzling Diamonds.

Shadow stamping the trees from Lovely As A Tree, cutting the circular aperture and positioning that on the inside - I think it looks pretty I'm pleased with the finished card particularly because it uses the skating couple - I'm clearly missing Artem and Kara !! - a favourite stamp from the Winter Post stamp set.

If you enlarge the photos it helps to see the effect of the glitter so much better - but please don't be too critical about my straight lines etc as it shows up all the imperfections - I do like simple cards that don't take too long to create and recreate but I adore looking and admiring the very complex creations my many talented friends produce - please take a look in the sidebar favourites to see what I mean, breathtakingly stunning !!!

So you see, I wasn't away for too long this time, was I? - I'll be back very soon - Bridgette
