DL.ART Thankful Thursday Challenge #196 - Winter

Happy Thursday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! I seemed to have picked up a touch of food poisoning, so I may not be around to visit you for a couple of days :( It's time for a new Thankful Thursday Challenge at DL.ART and the theme this week is Winter. You could always substitute a Thank You card. If you use the code l01210, Diana will give you 10% off your order at DL.ART.


Since I'm not feeling the greatest, I'm going to be very brief with the ingredients of this card. I used a Sue Wilson Tag to cut the scene from Maja Designs papers. Blue and White Twine from the DL.ART Shop was added. The trees are Tim Holtz Tree Line and the snowflakes are Precious Marieke Snowflake Border. A Tim Holtz embossing folder was used for the background.


Tucked under the Wild Orchid Crafts flowers is a bow made from Pure Love ribbon from The Valentine Bundle.




 Thanks so much for stopping by!! I'll be by to visit when I feel better. Have a great day :)
