Winter Wonderland

It's time for a new challenge at Winter Wonderland and our theme for you this week is Dashing through the Snow - we would like to see some movement like sledging or ski-ing on your projects.  I've made a card using a fabulous LOTV die cut topper - it looks like these have been discontinued and replaced with the new Art Pads.


I have created a cloudy background with distress inks and mounted the image onto Kraft card stock cut with my Spellbinders Labels Fifteen die, the sentiment is also from LOTV stamped onto a Spellbinders ribbon banner die cut that I inked whilst still in the die.

I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss the white panel and cut a border with a Fiskars border punch.  The papers are Dovecraft Back to Basics Vintage Christmas and the ribbon is from my stash.

I have decorated the inside of my card to complement the front:


This week we have two fabulous sponsors again
