The challenge on Bee Crafty this week is a card that is a winter scene, but not Christmas. I needed to make a male birthday card for December. Stuck for ideas I used this challenge as my basis together with Paperplay who want monochrome cards. I have never done a "winter" birthday card before but am pleased how it turned out. It is low on embellishments as it is for a man. Instead of using glitter I did a technique I saw Sheena Douglass use, which is to use glue and add embossing power, I did this to the bulrushes and parts of the tree to give some dimension. The images are all from a MCS cdrom called Winter Wonderland.
