"Winter Scenes"












 I love this set.

I used my favorite technique for flowers... paper tole.

I stamped the flower 4 times, colored, cut and layered. I added glitter to the top flower.

The paper doily and ribbon started out white. I wanted a more vintage look so I tea stained them. it is hard to see but on the one panel, I am giving you a sneak peek at "Just a Note" set. I stamped it in a light brown. It was hard to get it to show up in the photograph because it is so subtle in real life.

  4. Very pretty, MariLynn. The slight tan (tea-stained) background is perfect for your flower, and I love the ribbon treatment. Paper tole adds such texture to your card. Beautifully done!
