Winter Scene

This is the last of the Christmas cards that I made using my The Best of La Pashe CD.  These cards are relatively easy to make and were ideal for my neighbours.

The flower embellishments have been decoupaged, I'm not quite sure what they are - winter roses perhaps.  I have embossed the white base and layered both that, the image and sentiment on silver Mirri.

I kept the inside decoration very simple:

Your card is so elegant. The white with silver accents is perfect for creating a wintery feel. I like the inside as well - simple, yet not plain.
