Feeling blue....

Blue with cold, maybe! Brrrr! We've got snow - finally! Days after the rest of the country and only a couple of flakes, but definitely snow! The boys love it :-) This card is for my middle son, George, and I LOVED making it.
The image is one of my current faves from Lili of the Valley, coloured with promarkers (including a couple of my new ones), glitter gel pen and a little glitter glue. I've followed a fab sketch from Sketch and Stash. I've used some silver mirror card I've had for aaaages and some yummy new papers I won from Jude - they are from Daisy and Dandelion's Percy and Penelope collection. I used my new xcut holly punch I bought at the NEC and the papermania mini polka dot embossing folder which I love! The "Son" stamp is from papermania.
The challenges I'm entering this into are:
Sketch and Stash - Fab sketch
The Creative Cottage - Untraditional Christmas
The ABC Challenge - I is for Ice and Snow
Cards for Men - Christmas cards
Have a fab weekend!
Love 'n' hugs,
Mel xx

Fantastic card! I love all those shades of blue (I'm trying to get to grips with monochromatic at the mo, and it's harder than it looks!)

Stay warm (I recommend thermal longjohns, they may not be sexy but I'd rather be warm!!!)

luv, Mags x
