We've had such a mild winter down here in the south that a scene like this (that we were enjoying last year this time) seems hard to imagine. This week we are enjoying the theme Winter Wonderland of Cool Colours. I have used this beautiful stamp from Magenta which could with a little imagination be used for spring,summer & autumn  too. On this occasion I have stamped onto pale blue card (a tip from my good friend Jan Caudrelier!) as this sets the frosty look straight away. Just add a few subtle highlights with coloured pencils, some heavier accenting with white pencil & some frosting using the glue pen & crystal glitter. I have used a DS white card blank with a strip of DSA sheet across the centre & coated with glitter. You may have noticed that I have cut a strip from the right hand edge of the card & replaced it with acetate. I have placed a piece of the pretty Magenta scrapbook paper Victorian Beauty on the inside of the card to show through the acetate section. On the acetate I have added the sentiment from Christmas Words & a few s/a diamantes to accent the paper's design. Now just add the peel off border & a piece of white polka dot ribbon to finish the card.
