Winter Season

I was hoping to enter last weeks sketch challenge on Colours and Sketches but at the last minute I had to go to my daughters to look after my Granddaughter who was poorly.  It was lovely to see her again and as she wasn't too bad we had a lot of fun.  So this week I decided to enter the colour challenge and use last weeks sketch.  I have had the Stampin' Up set Four Seasons for a while now and have been dying to use it, so this was a good excuse.  It also made me get out my Cuttlebug, which I hardly ever use, because I cant be bothered to get it all out.  I'm so lazy!!! I got all my dies out too and had a good time playing with it.  I have left it out now so I can use it more often. Here's the card...

I don't think I am a very good photographer as this has come out quite pale. The colours are darker really. I stamped the image in Real Red as I don't have Cherry cobbler and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I coloured a background paper with Crumb Cake and had some Old Olive card.  I cut out the circles using my Cuttlebug and had a fancy edging die which I used on the strip of Old Olive card.  It has all been mounted on Natural White Stampin' Up card. The  snowflake stamp is part of the Four Seasons set.  This card is not as pretty as others on show but at least it is another one for my Christmas Card stash.  I am a bit behind with them this year.
