White on White Christmas

Evening all. 
Where has today gone? Here I was working away this afternoon and suddenly its pitch black outside.
I must have been really concentrating on my crafting! 
OK, here is my card for today. Its WOW as I have been reading the Creative Inspirations blog.
I like the challenge of working in a restricted palette. It makes you think that little bit harder and sometimes you can surprise yourself.


This is an easel card made using a Go Kreate large Frilly Frame. I made a mistake at first, I forgot to leave one edge as a hinge! Well I used the mistakes to cut out some embellishments so they didn't go to waste.
The skier is an old Magnolia stamp and I used Copics to colour ,keeping the palette simple, just reds,blues and brown. The sentiment is from a set from LOTV, cut and mounted using a Sizzix die set, Ornate labels 2. The embossed papers were from Cuttlebug and the trees from a Marianne die. Small snowflakes from a Xcut and Woodware punch, the large from a Sizzix Sizzlet die.

I will enter it for the following challenges:-

ABC Christmas  - W for Winter Wishes

Drop by again soon.
