Winter Wonderland: Check this out!

Happy Wednesday bloggers!  I'm here on this fine fall day to share with you my card for this week's Winter Wonderland challenge.  They have asked us to use checked/tartan papers, ribbons, embellies here is what I went with:

My plaid paper comes from the Recollections Jingle Bells 12x12 pad.  The light blue cardstock comes from the Seaside paper pack also by Recollections.  Used the Spellbinders' snowflake embossing folder on the top layer of cardstock, and distressed the edges with Tumbled Glass.  Also did that to the edges of the image oval.  You can barely see it, but I used a scalloped oval cut from vellum to back the image panel.  I got the idea from this card, made by Greta.  Thanks for the inspiration, Greta!  :)

In case you're wondering, this adorable bear is Jake, from StampFairy.  He can be found here.  I SO love Gerda's bears!  :)  The sentiment comes from Studio G.

What are your plans for this evening?  We plan to go to a local Halloween parade.  Pretty directly, I will need to get myself ready, and start boiling water for hot chocolate!  :)  Guess I'll get this linked up, and here is where it's going:

  4. Hi Marie, this is a fabulous Christmas card, such an adorable image and lovely embossed panel.
    In answer to your question about my Blue and White only card - unfortunately, I didn't colour it myself, if only I could colour that well! I have so many Christmas cards to make that I sometimes use the LOTV Mini Masterpiece die cut squares.
