Secret Crafters - White & One other Colour

I don't need to tell you how happy I always am that it's the weekend, but I'll give it a big WHOOP WHOOP anyway!! Our lovely boss lady & original Secret Crafter, Wendy has chosen our theme for this week challenge at Secret Crafters & it is


 I thought I would struggle with this as I always use more colour in my cards, but it was perfect for a frosty, vintage style Xmas card. The fab LOTV image is coloured with distress inks & the papers are MME, Merry Days of Christmas. I edged everything with Picket Fence Distress Stain & used Liquid Pearls for the snow. The stars were die cut & 2 layers covered with Picket Fence Crackle Paint. The top star I then covered with Glossy Accents & Sprinkled with glitter. I love how it turned out. I think the gem swirls are by Prima.

I based my layout on the lovely sketch at Sketch & Stash this week. My stamp is new & I have to say, was nice & easy to colour. My old stash is the papers & diamante swirls I have had since last Xmas!

At Bunny Zoes this month the challenge is to put lace on your card. I chose some I thought looked like icicles for the purposes of this card.

So I hope you'll now hop on over to the Secret Crafters blog to see the amazing creations of my wonderful D-Teamies.

That's it for now. After England's dismal failure in the rugby last week, I'm now off to support the land of my mother's birth & where she lived for all of 2 weeks, Wales.

Have a great weekend & thanks so much for looking.
Big Hugs,
Andie xx

Andie! You are such a sports nut! haha! Love it!
Your card is so cute with the blue and white! It makes me feel a bit of chill in the air (even though it is still in the 80's here). The Prima swirls are so pretty, I always forget about using those!
Have a wonderful day! BIG OLE HUGS!
