Little Star......

Morning peeps, what a glorious morning all frosty and white with the sun shining, a perfect day for crafting and that is exactly what I did when I got up first thing this morning, I love Sundays a whole day off with usually nothing to do, well apart from the usual chores, I always get up and take a cup of tea with me into my little oasis and have a play and this mornings card is what I created, although I did colour the image in previously.

I dug out some old papers that I had from Kars which were perfect for this shabby Winter card, I left off the word Christmas so that it could be either a Christmas card or a winter Birthday card. The image was coloured with Prismas and I used Snow writer for all the textured snow as well as tea Dye and Broken china inks for the distressing, the trees were then heat embossed with Aurora embossing powder by Cosmic this stuff and I think I'll need some more real soon.

The image is by Karen Middleton, she does do sweet images and this one is called Little Star available at Cuddly Buddly.
