Winter Frost

Good Morning. I hope everyone is having a good weekend.  It it beautiful here.  It is crisp, cool weekend and I love it!  After the hot summer I am enjoying this.

Today is Stempeltraume's challenge.  The theme today gives you a choice.  You can use a Tilda stamp or use the color brown.  As hard as it is to believe, I don't own any Tilda stamps so I decided to use Brown.   With the cooler weather I was in the mood to make a XMAS card.  This is one of the Lili of the Valley XMAS stamps.  Isn't she pretty?  The background paper is digi paper from Jak Heath.  It is beautiful and I couldn't wait to use it.  I also used my Viva Pearl pen on this card.  I need some more practice with it to keep the pearls a uniformed size but I do love the pen.

If you have a Tilda stamp play along!!  If not, brown is a great color for Fall and, as I used it, an accent for XMAS and winter cards so come join the fun!

The other wonderful challenges this card fits are:

Charisma - XMAS - I love XMAS cards that sparkle and I think this would make a great XMAS card.

Daring Cardmakers - Opal & XMAS- Opal is such a pretty color.  I think my pearls give off the same creamy white that opals do.  I think this would make a great XMAS card!

Catch the Bug - Anything Goes - I do love this theme!!

Fussy and Fancy - Sketch - I love this sketch.  I hope my card does it justice.

Gingerloft - Glitter - I have alot of glitter on this card and if I could have, would have put more.

Paper Sundaes - Something from your stash -  The snowflake punch, the pearls on the snowflake, the ribbon, the stamp for the saying are all things from my stash of stuff.

Thank you for visiting.  I hope you like my card.  Thanks to everyone who leaves a comment.  I appreciate all of them.

I love your card Peggy & this is one of my favourite LOTV Images. I love the Viva Pearl Pens to. I find the faster you squeeze the more rounded they are but it doesn't always work lol

I actually like the wonky sized pearls--gives it a little character! I'll have to seek out one of those pens.

I also really like the sentiment font.
