Gingerloft -Guest Designer - Winter Theme

Hi everyone I hope you can join us over at Gingerloft for Challenge #4 which is a Winter theme. Today I am so honored to be one of their Guest Designers. I just had so much fun playing along with this Wintry Tree image.

I decided to do this image in just black and white and draw lines on the tree branches with Stardust stickles for an icy, wintry effect. I love how it came out. In real life it is so beautiful. This is the inside of my card with a peek of the envelope.I was just so thrilled to walk one day into Hobby Lobby for my friend and find that they had quite a few Spellbinders on sale for $8.99. I had been wanting this frame forever. As you can see I wrapped some pretty metallic gold, red, and green ribbon around it and used some old vintage buttons I had in my stash. I could resist using a "White Christmas" sentiment.

Won't you come and play along with us at the Gingerloft Challenge! Thanks for stopping by today, it has been a pleasure to have you here for a spell.
