Winter Wonder And The November 'Any Image' Challenge At The Ribbon Girl

Hello, lovely blogger friends.
I hope you are well.
Today see's a new November 'Any Image' challenge over on The Ribbon Girl challenge blog.
 All types of projects are welcome as long as there is an image.
The challenge will run for 2 weeks until 9pm on Saturday 29th November.

I have made a Christmas card.
I used Winter Wonder by Silvia Zet for SCACD.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out using a CartUs oval die.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils and matted the finished image onto a Joy Crafts Noor Design oval.

For the shape of the card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #2 and Maja Design Enjoying Outdoors papers from LLC
Other dies used are; Marianne Design Anja's Vintage decoration, Cheery Lynn English tea party doily and French pastry doily, Joy Crafts Ice crystal circle and Vintage flourishes holly leaves. Magnolia Doohickey bloomy tag.
I frantaged all the die cuts with shabby white embossing enamel..
I used lots of gorgeous products from The Ribbon Girl online store.
Here is a list. Just click on the links to take you to the products.

A close look at the flower arrangements, Snowflake stick pin and purple satin bow with the Amethyst heart embellishment in the middle and 6mm s/a hearts in the centre of the purple rolled roses.

Here is a close look at this adorable image. Don't you just love them both?
I used a Hobby Art snowflake stamp for the background and sprinkled Frantage shabby white embossing enamel around the image and adhered some 3mm white s/a pearls.
I used glamour dust on the hats, pom pom's, cuffs, around the trim on the coat and boots and used glossy accents on Teddy's nose and the candle flame.
I adhered a length of oval pearl trim around the outside of the image.

Inside the card is decorated with design paper and a Spellbinders floral oval.

There are 3 fabulous prizes up for grabs.

First prize; A £10 voucher for LOTV

Second prize; £10 voucher for The Ribbon Girl

  3. Donna, your project is filled with an abundance of all things beautiful... what treasures you create! I love Sylvia's images and hope to return to coloring sometime soon. I've only colored once this entire year, I believe. :( The colors are so pretty and each layer of elegance has sweet treasures tucked within... there is alway something new to discover the longer you stare. :o) And boy do I ever stare at your creations with a dreamy expression on my face. You are so talented and it is a blessing to visit your blog. Stunning work, my friend.

    Hugs and blessings,
