Winter Blues C4G

Morning all, it's time for a brand new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz.
This time our theme is -


So projects of a wintery nature in blue, simples!
Here is my card.

When I went shopping on Friday the supermarket staff were putting out the Christmas decorations already! They could have waited until after Bonfire night, couldn't they?
Anyway I do like a decorative bauble so went with that idea for my card.
It's quite simple to make, just 2 circles of white card. Ink one with shades of blue to make a night sky, I used DI in Chipped Sapphire, Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch, adding in a few stars with a white gel pen. Keep the center lighter then it looks like the bauble has some depth! 
From the second I cut my snowy silhouette using STAMPlorations Winter Landscape and from the other side of that circle I cut a drift of snow using the same die but trimmed the trees off!
The snow drift was glued onto the silhouette section then the whole was popped up on pads over the night sky layer. 
On a trimmed down panel of white card I stamped Uniko's sentiment in Memento Paris Dusk and added some silver ribbon from which to hang my bauble. The layered circle was placed over the ribbon and then a small matching bow added before the completed panel was glued flat onto my base card. 
OK, that's it from me but there's more masculine inspiration over on the Cardz4Guyz blog.
Check it out and then why not join us?
