What a Fabulous Surprise

I have been away with work in the 'real' world and have returned to 'blogland' to find that I have been named as a 'True Beauty' winner in the Flourishes Bring Back Beautiful Challenge, "The Beauty of a Gift". You can see the original post here.

I am so delighted, to be honoured by such a prestigious team, it has truly made my day, no forget that, made my week!! Thank you to Julie and the team, I am, as we say here in Northern England, "Dead chuffed!"

Today's card is for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge and Bring Back Beautiful Challenge 4.

Here it is:

Pretty straightforward card. Marianne image stamped in versafine ink and coloured with Copics. I added a little applique that swells up when you heat it, to the snow. I love that stuff, always get excited when it starts to puff up. LOL.

I added a few gems as the string of ornaments that she is carrying.

Popped the whole thing onto a cuttlebugged background.

Happy crafting,

Iolanthe x
