Winter wonderland

For this card I've used a background piece of My Paper Stash 'red snowflakes', added a decoupaged image etc at the base - this was recycled from a card received. Crystal ice stickles was added to the centres of the snowflakes and across the bottom. I had to take the photograph at an angle because the background is mirror card which reflects so much head-on with flash.

This is another card for both my CHNC challenge 105 and my new CHNC challenge extra for January (where monthly challenges will always be 'anything goes') - if you haven't discovered these Christmas challenge blogs yet, please click on the links and join in.

One of the Playground ladies told me when LOTV had free shipping & I got some of them. This looks like one of the Bear motifs. You've given me a lovely idea of how to use one. Absolutely love your background too. Great photography job. I'll try to join the fun one of these days. Need to start NOW for cards for next year. LOL. TFS
