Auroa Wings-TTPH

Good morning lovely people.... I must apologise for my lack of blogging lately but I have been majorly busy making commission cards some of which I hope to share, and like most crafters  I'm trying to make Christmas cards and its just not happening ... One step forward, ninety five back lol and we seem to be racing towards November arggggghhhh scary or what?!?......Here endith today's mini rant .....

Now onto today's DT make for TTPH, the theme is Snowflakes/Stars. We're sponsored this week by Aurora Wings Who have some truly beautiful images to chose from.... I have used the stunning "Christmas Floral", it is so detailed and really did test my colouring skills, but it was such fun to colour....

I used my clear wink of Stella pen, (my best purchase in a long time, looks beautiful without the aftermath of the devils dust, which is the name for glitter in my house). I wanted to make this image the star of the show so to speak so I kept the design relatively simple...

I matted the holly paper onto red card stock and also made a frame for the picture out of the same card stock. I edged the frame with that wink of stella pen again and added a cream bow and snowflake to finish....
