Cold Christmas


I struggled to get a good photo of my card and this was the best I could get but it does give that night time look I was trying to get.
I used another of my all time favourite stamps called Kindness No 40-038. I did minimal colouring but lots of sparkle. I found a large roll of fine sparkly wrapping paper at my local shop which has a sort of thin plastic backing. When die cutting it pops right out of the dies and I get much more value than buying A4 sheets. I tore a strip to make the snow and used a marianne die for the branches. It looks like sparkle heaven when seen in real life.
Now to remind you that the Penny Black and More Christmas challenge is mid way and you still have plenty of time to enter. The DT have made some fabulous cards for inspiration and there are some fantastic craft goodies you could win. You do not have to use a Penny Black stamp image to enter as long as your main image is a stamped image or you can use a PB Stickeroo. Pop over to the blog for all the info making sure you read the hilighted rules section.

I have entered my card into the chalenges listed below.

This is such a striking card Shirley, I like your use of white space on the image and makes it stand out beautifully against the bold blue background.

I love your minimal colouring style and one of these days I will have a go myself! It's so effective, especially on this card with the white space and the lovely glitter. Such an effective card.

Hi Shirley! I think might might be your first visit to the Snippets Playground so a huge welcome to you! I adore this card, just love the minimal colouring which really does make for elegant impact. Wonderful cards on your blog too.

Hope you come back again soon - and if you want to be in the prize draw do please say so in a comment. The reason I ask that is 'cos in the past one or two winners didn't want their prize (little ingrates!) and so I had to go through a redraw process. This way at least I know if folk are playing just for fun. I bet your little girl would love a go on the Playground swings :)
