Country Snowflakes


This looked so much better in real life, I was trying to use the sketch on Splitcoast Stampers 459 but I decided the middle panel had to go off centre so it now doesn't look like the sketch.
The Snowflakes are some new ones from Simon Says Stamps, they called Maryanne and I just cut out a few a layered them on the centre panel. I also brought the Merry Christmas die from them too but when it arrived I was disappointed that they looked like they were joined together but actually they're not once you cut them out.
My middle panel I was experimenting with the MFT grass die to see if it worked instead of the punch since I'm having issues with my shoulders at the moment not sure that worked. I used the scoring board for the embossed stripes.
Not my best but it does look better in real life.

                           
Now with the clocks going back I've been told I should publish my card for the new Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge at 3pm so will see you then with my card. Now I've been told its 1pm so thats when I'm going to publish, trust me I had enough trouble with working out the time when we came back from spain without the clocks going back to confuse me more so I not going to be able to work out US time!

Being far too critical of your work again Debby. This card is lovely. The gingham works really well with the other elements. I have got the corner die at a last - wouldn't have known about it but for you. It's lovely can't stop using it.

Hey Debby I think it looks fab and until I read your blurb I did not realise you'd used a grass die (ingenious)

This card really stood out on my blogger reading list Debby, it is really gorgeous!
I just love the wording it looks so tactile, at first I thought it was wire.
