Warm Winter Wishes


 
 Hi and Good Morning everyone :)
 
Our challenge theme this week is 'Winter Whites', and so this is a lovely excuse to brighten up a dark January with a sparkling fresh card.
 
I started off with a 6 x 6 blank card base and used American Crafts textured cardstock for all the matting, layers and die cuts. 
 
I cut the elegant French Lattice Frame for the background as it added depth and always looks really stylish.  The borders are the beautiful Anastasia lace border, and to hide the join to the frame I cut a delicate strip from the Expandable Tiny Borders die plate.  This is a really useful multiple border die.
 
I coloured a cute Sylvia Zet digi image and layered onto circle stackers and the gorgeous Pinwheel Doily die.  The snowflowers are a mix of different snowflakes layered up and secured together with pearl brads.
 
All dies used on this card are:
 
 
I cant wait to see what everyone comes up with this week, and you still have plenty of time to enter our challenge.  Dont forget there is always fresh and inspirational ideas to be found on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration blog too.
 
Have a smashing week, and thanks so much for visiting today,
