I'm dreaming of a white Christmas

No, I'm not actually dreaming of a white Christmas, but that's the title of my card for If the shoe fits Fashionista Friday 11 sketch:

It's also for these challenges:

Something completely different week 28: 'blue/white and snowflakes'
Paper Maniac Inspirations: 'Create something vintage/retro - Optional Challenge:
Create something Christmas-related
Another one for Creative Belli 78: 'Christmas with creative cuts and more' - use Christmas
embellishments (the added snowflakes)
And another one for Ildi Co 5: choose a Christmas song - this time: 'I'm dreaming of a white Christmas'
And the colours are good for day 131 on 365 cards: 'ad inspired' (yes, I am still doing some of the old 365 challenges!)

Etsy inspired
62: 'Quiltish from Alissa Jacobs' - the idea is to look in her shop and choose something to inspire crafting - this is what I've chosen:

On C.R.A.F.T. 26 - this was the inspiration photo given:

I've used some Craft Creations 'snowflakes on dark blue' paper for the background. The tree is a photo I took the last time we had snow, the pillar box picture is one that I used last year - I added some snowflakes as well and the sentiment was computer generated.

Sorry, the scan is a bit crooked, not the card!

Don't forget: If you go to the top of my blog you will find the post about my celebration candy - you've got to be in it to win it!
