Winter Wishes

This is my post on the
for our current challenge 
'Winter Blues"
and using the inspiration board below.

Hello, Diane with you today!
Our challenge this week is winter blues, make it blue and white
and to use the  inspiration board
Well, you can also see I was inspired a bit by the kraft color
in the bottom photo.

I started my card by embossing with 
Darice embossing folder Doily Lace.
Using a Kraft paper, I die cut Marianne Anja's Large Oval.
The green flourish you see is also from the same set.

The image and the snow verse you see are both from the 
gorgeous Graphic 45 Time To Flourish paper pack.
This paper pack is so beautiful that
I had to purchase two pads, as I knew one I would hoard!

I added a bit of sparkle by using 

I finished up with a few Le Creme pearls.

Thank you for visiting with me today!
