'green' blue card

not amused by having to redo this post thanks (?) to Blogger having a major hissy fit, especially after having to have several goes to load it the first time . due to another hissy least, thanks to Blogger, the deadline has been extended for bah humbug 18, so I can actually redo it.
The challenge was to use green or a recycled element - I am totally out of green card, so it had to be recycled, and the image came from a card I received last year which had fortunately escaped the recycling bin! I dotted cutout snowflakes onto a blue base card, and sprayed it with sapphire glimmermist - it doesn't show up too well on the scan, so will try to get a photo this weekend if the weather stays camera-friendly . I trimmed the image down, rounded the corners, and matted it onto gold card, also with rounded corners, then onto the base card. very simple - had to be, I ran out of time this week!
photo now added, snowflakes show up better here - sorry for gravel background!

  7. Hi Veronica,
    Yes ... Mr. B has been a naughty little 'B' and caused chaos throughout blogland. However, we're a resilient lot us crafters lol! Super image ... and although it's hard to see the snowflakes I'm sure they're lovely in real life. Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!

  8. Yep, Mr Blogger has been driving me nuts all week because I haven't been able to comment and I'm just too thronged with the wedding next week to go back and comment on multiple posts like I usually do. I hate missing posts too.

    I'm glad you managed to post this in the end Veronica. It such a simple but beautiful image and you have turned it into a lovely card.
