Winter wonderland–DT card

Happy Saturday everyone.  Did you all watch the Royal Wedding yesterday?  I wasn’t planning on watching it (apart from a quick glimpse at the dress) but ending up glued to the TV until the coverage finished at 4.00pm lol!  Her dress was gorgeous and they seemed so happy.  I wish them a happy and healthy future together. 

In all the excitement yesterday I completely forgot to schedule my post to show you my DT card for this week’s winter wonderland challenge!!  The lovely Marianne has set the theme and she has chosen “snow much fun”, but she doesn’t want to see simply snowmen etc she wants to see people having fun in the snow i.e. skating, making a snowman etc.  Here is my card:

WW #7 - snow much fun

WW #7 - snow much fun (close up)

I used a super cute image from Phindy’s place, which I recently won in one of their challenges.  I went for a fairly bright colour scheme but I quite like it.  Since I still had my flowersoft out on my desk I decided to use it on the snowflakes and on the ground, then it was the obligatory snowflake and some pearls and my card was done! 

Our sponsor this week is stamping dragon designs and the lucky winner will receive 3 digi images of their choice.
