A Christmas Scene at the Winter Wonderland

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees the next challenge at the


where we are back into the swing of Christmas Cards only

so the theme this week is being hosted by the very talented Lisa, and that theme is

A Christmas Scene

We are sponsored by Squiggle, where the randomly drawn winner will win 2 of Squiggle Digis

Here is what I created for my Inspirational piece, although don't forget to hop on over to the main challenge site to see the rest of the amazing eye candy created to further inspire you.
I created an easel card with additional steps. All in white with Memory Dies, Cheery Lynn dies and Marianne Dies.  The ring of bling around the sentiment and the sentiment itself are from Grimsby Crafts. 

The image, coloured in copics, is a mixture of adapted Emerald Fairy Garden images with a Make It Craft back drop.  The glittered snow is liquid appliqué and glitter.
I would like to thank all my wonderful followers and visitors for their lovely and inspiring comments, which allows me to hop over and visit you in return

I would like to remind you all that my 800 follower candy is now running and can be entered here
