Winter wonderland challenge–DT card

Good morning dear friends, I hope your week has gone well but I’m sure you’ll agree with me when I say ‘thank goodness it’s Friday’!  I am so looking forward to the weekend and having a little lie-in, I’m really not a morning person at all and really want to win the lottery and give up work now haha!  However until this happens I will have to struggle in the mornings and get up for work!! 

Onto happier things and it’s Team Marianne’s turn to share their cards this week over at the winter wonderland challenge.  As I mentioned last week we are completely Christmas themed challenges from now on so an apt theme this week is “snowflakes”.  You can make whatever you like as long as it contains a snowflake – easy!  Here is my card:

  WW #4 - snowflakes

I decided to make a set of thank you cards to give out after Christmas to thank people for their cards and gifts.  I know they are very plain and simple but I thought the snowflake was so pretty I wanted that to be the focal point of my card.  I’m sorry the pictures aren’t very crisp but the snowflake was stamped with a brilliance inkpad and it’s makes photographing them very difficult due to the shimmer.  The first picture is more a true representation of the colour but the second picture really shows off the shimmery quality of the brilliance ink.  They look much nicer IRL honestly!  Shock horror no promarkers were harmed in the making of my cards!!!

Our sponsor this week is Pollycraft and the lucky winner will receive 5 digis of their choice.
