Winter Blues

It snowed here yesterday, may have about 1.5 - 2 inches. The boys love it, me NOT! I gotta drive in it this morning to go to work. The challenge over at Cheery Lynn this week is Winter Blues, although I dout if this is exally what they had in mind, it's what I came up with. I used some white scarps and put Inka Gold on it, end results are the blue flowers, . I punched out using Martha Stewart punches, love the shine, gotta do more of that. I used Fanciful Flourish, my favorite die and the image is a new one from Sugar Nellie, her name is Rebbecca, I colored her with Prismacolor pencils. Oh yeah Deco Shell punches from Martha Stewart. The card is 5.5 X 5.5. When ever I want to punch around that's the size I go for, other than that it's the 5 X 7. Okay, gotta hit the shower and get out of here. Have a blessed day and I'll catch up later!!!

This card with its pretty blue and black combo is lovely. The MS punch makes a lovely border. Giving me a push to try more around the card punches and I LOVE the idea that you tell the size of your card.
