A simple thanks ....

First of all - sorry about the photos - quite dark here this morning, so I've had to take this on my desk and I always seem to get them a bit lopsided!!  I used a few challenges to make this card:

The evergreen theme was the prompt for the card, and gave me the chance to use my lovely new Waltzingmouse Dies - Claire has lots of lovely new dies in her shop.  I cut a panel of white card, slightly smaller than the base and cut out the pinking circle and glued the panel to some green design paper.  I stamped the branch and pine cones onto some scrap card.  I coloured the stamp with lots of markers and then sprayed some water into the air and passed the inked image through the droplets - this gives a lovely soft image when stamped on the paper.  I cut out the stamped image and added a touch of glitter - to suggest frost.  I adhered the branch to the card with dimensional tape.  I was going to have just the sentiment at the bottom, but I added a fallen pine cone, also glittered.  The inside has a mat layer of green and a plain white panel for my message.  I think you can see the glitter sparkle above, however, I've added a photo to show the sparkle.  Deliberately blurred so that you can see the shimmer.

That's all for now - off to do housy stuff again!  It never ends!!!  See you later.
