Colour Create & Pollycraft Challenges

First up, apologies for the wonky photo, the card is straight and a bit brighter in real life! But it was done this morning, on my phone in the porch - so it's not too bad! LOL

I saw the challenge on Colour Create which was to make a card all in white, apart from the image and the DT cards were stunning so I was determined to give this one a go and I'm really pleased how it came out, I will be doing this again. I used the sketch at Pollycraft as I was using a Pollycraft image (how cute!) so I can enter it there as well.

I bought some fluffy stuff yesterday and used that for the snow, trouble was I overheated it slightly and it went a bit yellow, so I've distracted the eye with some glitter! The sentiment was cut out on the Cricut on red shiny card and the image was coloured with ProMarkers, brad & ribbon from my stash.

Fab Jan, I was a bit afraid of this challenge, I love white, but did'nt know how to put a card together with no coloured papers, Thanks for visiting Nikkis blog and giving her encouragement, she does not get much time craft, but she is loving it, unfortunately we live 75 miles apart, but see each other as much as possible, this blog is great for us and I spent so much time encouraging her to take part in a challenge.....Hugs Avril xxx
