Snow Queen

Whenever I start making Christmas cards I always end up singing Christmas songs and carols which drive my hubby round then bend ;)  I was singing walking in a winter wonderland to myself while making this one - it's the snow does it to me every time and yes I got raised eyebrows from hubby :)

The image (which made me think of the White Witch in The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe) is coloured with ProMarkers - Lucy Loo Snow Queen from The East Wind.

The image is amazing so I wanted to keep it as the main focus.  I've added some black card stock to frame it.

There's only one design paper with lots of snow flakes on it from Lili of the Valley.  I've used a couple of their tiny tags from a Christmas stamp set with snow flakes on, a few snow flakes stickers, some self adhesive gems and a sentiment cut out of a tag from a present last year.

I'm slowly coming round to the idea of making Christmas cards - but in July I'm still finding it little odd when it's so warm outside.
