Winter Walks with Carol @ CD Sunday

Well I didn't expect to be making a Christmas card quite so soon! The challenge on CD Sunday is Winter walks and I started with the image of the lady in the frame from MCS Festive Deco Follies as I haven't used it for ages. I then found a backing paper that was the same as the scene behind the lady and lined it up to look like she is in a scene in a frame (if that makes snese!) I then added the background Merry Christmas paper, croping part of it for the sentiment on the background and then added snowflakes and more poinsettias. Finally I put the snowdrift at the foot of the card and added some glitter and the ribbon.
It's ages since I made a whole card using MCS and I really enjoyed resizing and layering it all up.
On a practical note - I doubt her walk will be a long one in those shoes in the snow LOL!

You make it all sound so easy and as if it all just fell into place, Linby! But I know it took a look of work and design talent and I think it's just gorgeous!! I hope your Christmas was wonderful and I wish you all the best in the new year!! (And good job getting that 2015 Christmas card stash started!!) Hugs, Darnell

Wow Lynn this is just stunning. I love the way she is sitting in the scene with the frame around her and the colours are so striking. Wishing you a 2015 filled with tons of love and joy.
