A Winter Card and a Award!


I have a Papertakes Challenge to share today that I paired with the My Mind’s Eye card challenge.

For Papertakes Weekly Challenge we were to:

“Brrr it's cold outside and Jack Frost is nipping at your toes ,,, lots of inspiration through your windows for our theme this week :-)
COLD AND FROSTY MORNING ,, so we would like to see winter scenes and /or icy colours,, so blues, whites, lilacs, greys etc. :-)”

and for My Minds Eye we were to use this wonderful sketch by the awesome Anam Stubbington.

I used Spellbinders Paper Arts dies: Big Scalloped Border GrandClassic Scalloped Borderabilities® Petite, Standard Circles LG and Create A Flake Two   . My Mind’s Eyes Papers and I held all these goodies together with Glue Dots.

Here is my take…….
