Walking in a WOW Winter Wonderland!!

Hello peeps...me again, two posts in one day...get me!!
(My AYLI DT piece is here)

I have looked in awe at the fabulous WOW cards that have made an appearance in blogland this week in support of the latest Winter Wonderland Challenge and decided I MUST have a go. It was also a good excuse to play with a Tonic die set that was given to me for my Birthday and hadn't been used.


Normally I struggle with this kind of work but I really enjoyed making this one and am SO pleased with the result, I only wish I'd cut more pieces at the same time and made more!! I used Centura Pearl card for all the elements which is why I think this was successful. When I've done these before I have used up scraps of white cardstock and as we all know these vary so much in colour.

Hope you are bathed in sunshine like we are here...it's a miracle really, I never thought spring would ever arrive!! On that note, I'd better go and drag the lawnmower out!!

Thank you for sharing your day xx

Great job, love the flowers. I love the Centura pearl too. Linen card works well too, I get mine from The Range.

Annette said...

Wow to your WOW! I always think White on White looks so elegant. It's lovely Sarah.

MaryH said...

This is definitely a WOW in more ways than one! Just amazingly stunning & beautiful. One has to keep looking to find more details, with the cutouts, the embossing, the wonderful scene and what looks like some paste embossing (but was perhaps an EF). This is quite different from your usual style, and just proves that you are so versatile in your skills. It's just awesome, and lucky you to have had the Centura Pearl (I hear you about the various bits of white, and they NEVER match - at least not in the photo, even if your eye doesn't catch it!). Well DONE! TFS & yes we have lovely sunshine, and back to warm again. Had coffee on the porch swing, quite pleasant.
