Winter Wonderland

Hello friends,

Greeting you from a very hot summer day in South Africa.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your visits during 2015. I wish you all happy holidays and a Merry Christmas. Enjoy this very special and festive time with your family and loved ones.

Today I am posting my project for The Shabby Tea Room. The challenge at The Shabby Tea Room is called “Winter Wonderland” and the winner of this challenge will receive a $20 gift certificate from the Paper Sweeties boutique!

For my card I used lovely blue rosettes and silver snowflakes layered on an embossed background. The sentiment is from Paper Sweeties layered on a Spellbinders die cut. Although it is mid-summer in South Africa I really love creating this card.

Challenges:

Snowflakes
