CD Sunday Challenge - Frosty Days

I really should be sitting down making the last of my Christmas cards - but I just had to take some time out to enter a couple of challenges.  The first one is at the CD Sunday Challenge Blog where the theme this week is Frosty Days.

I used My Craft Studio "Magic of Christmas" CD & chose the Contemporary section.

I have mounted the blue background onto silver mirror card then placed that on the front of the white base card.  The wintry trees image I cut with deckle edge scissors following the height of the trees.  That was then layered onto more silver mirror card & cut again (It almost looks like frosty hill tops).  I stamped my star burst cluster on the blue background & embossed with Silver EP & added some glitter to the trees.

The glitter just about shows up in this close up of that section.

As I should have been making Christmas cards to send I used one of the other background papers for an insert & stamped the sentiment so that I could use this card.

There are always some fantastic cards for these challenges.  Not found the blog yet?  Then click on the link above, take a look & why not enter one of the challenges. It is great fun.

Thank you for popping into my little blog I hope you enjoyed your visit.  Please stop & say hello before you leave.  Thank you.
