Marvelous Magnolia - Snowflakes



Good Morning, I hope everyone is having a good week :) 

Well the snow still hasnt gone (we had over 6 inches fall from Sunday) and its frozen so hard its absolutely lethal - even my doggies were skating on it when they charged out this morning - lol! :)

My card today is for our new challenge over at Marvelous Magnolia where this week our theme is 'Snowflakes' .  Rather fitting really!  We have 2 fabby sponsors and great prizes, so well worth joining in.

I layered MME papers onto white Bazzil card and coloured the image with PM's.  The dies are mix of Doo Hickey, and Marianne and the lamp-post and snowflakes are Cheery Lynn.  The ornate gate is spellbinders and took absolute age to get right, then I remembered a tip that was left in my comments box a couple of weeks ago suggesting I try talcum powder - BRILLIANT tip! :)  It literally fell out with such ease, I was amazed! Thank you :)

Paula (PEP) said...

that definitely looks icy to me - amazing how the colours one uses combined with white can give such a wintery look - plus there's white & then there's white!!
Take care with the snow & ice- we've escaped so far.
That ornate gate looks quite something & very very fiddly.
