One image - two colourways

I'm really pleased with the way this card turned out. I have had the backing DP for ages and it is difficult to know what to do with it! This PB image fits nicely into the blank area and I have used some freebies from a mag as embellies down the side.
I'm entering this into the Totally Gorjuss challenge who want to see a Christmas card with traditional colours.

Another piece of DP which I am never sure what to do with, and also pleased this image fits in nicely. This time I have gone for the contemporary Christmas colours for a change. I'm entering it into the challenge on Penny Black at Allsorts challenge - "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas".

Two fabulous cards Lynn. It`s a gorgeous image and goes perfectly with the DP. I`m sure we all have papers that we`re not sure about, I know I have, but you have used yours brilliantly.

You are on a roll....those papers look really great the way you have used them. Amazing how different the image looks in different colours. Wonderful cards.

Love how your image in the first card fits the DP so well. Thanks for joining us at TG this week.

The DP in your second card is also perfect for that sweet image. Love that colourway too.

Hi Linby

It just shows how completely different the same image can look depending on the background doesn't it.

Both are lovely. The first one very traditional and the second having the perfect background for snowman!!

Thank you for sharing with Penny Black at Allsorts this month.

Love Jules xx

I love your card Lynn. The shadow effect in the background is beautiful. Your image is coloured beautifully and it co-ordinates perfectly with the background.
Thank you for joining in with the Penny Black at Allsorts challenge this month and we hope you will join us next time.
