Hmmmmmm this is not what I expected!

My take on a card :)

This card came from one in a magazine. Now in the mag it was covered in gorgeous Christmas paper and decorated to within an inch of its life. As I only have two hours to to two cards with a very riotous group of girls, they would have only got the one done and then felt cheated, so I embarked on a plan. Out came card, tools, paper, stickles and glue. Well, the basic card went well, but as I sat and pushed paper around, nothing jumped out at me until I went down the "keep it simple" road, so all this used in the end was card, paper and a white pen. I am still not sure that I like my "snow" but that is me not being a very good artist, not the idea, maybe the stickles will still come out to play on this one yet!

Oh the snowflakes are silver BTW, not dull grey :)

I love stickles. If all else fails I stickle it.

Talking of snow, I have never got the hang of that puffy fake snow stuff. You know, the sort of thing you see ably demonstrated but cannot recreate the effect to save your life.

I may just try a white pen instead!
