Winter Birthday.

Second post today and it's only about mid-day! I've known for a while that I had to make a card as part of a co-operative entry for a big WRI show on Saturday. Like every other time I have made anything for the show it has not been made very long in advance. I knitted a child's hat at the end of January and I have still to sew it up lol! I hate sewing up knitting. It would only take a few minutes to sew and I really need to do it soon, preferably today. Tomorrow I need to make the scones I promised to make for the teas. I also need a Get Well Card for one of the categories and 2 DT cards by Friday. So I need to stop wittering on and tell you about this card!!

I've used a lovely daytime winter image from Magnolia, coloured with Promarkers and finished off with stickles, Glamour Dust and pearls. I decoupaged the trees for a bit of dimension. The papers are also from Magnolia and I love them. I spent ages trying to make up my mind what papers to use! I think they work quite well though. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and I managed to get in my favourite Cuttlebug snowflake. How do you like the layout.? I followed the sketch from Winter Wonderland. It's a great sketch and I think it works really well with this image.

This is just another view to show the layered effect of the trees. I decided to make an easel card as I think they look quite impressive and are so easy to make.
When I finished it I thought it was maybe too red and green but it actually fits in quite well with the other 5 items in our little display. I'll try to remember to take my camera to the show and let you see a piccie. We have a painting of a wintry scene with a tractor and trees behind it. The top of a cake has been decorated with a fireplace with a clock on the mantlepiece and a rug and slippers. All the others think the card goes really well but if I post a piccie on Saturday you can see what you think!
I'm off to have my lunch now and then I really need to get on with the Get Well card. I've got as far as stamping an image.
Maybe see you later.
