Hi everyone,

I have a DT card to share today which I have made for the Challenge at Kraftyhands which is themed 'Winter Blues'.  Isn't that a fabulous theme?!

Well, I thought of the lovely Hyacinth in the 'English Country Garden' pack of postcard toppers from Kraftyhands right way, and the papers from the Fatale 6 inch pack were a perfect match.  

Set upon a white embossed background (I love the effect of a white embossed background) and the addition of the Noor and Cheery Lynn dies creates my version of 'Winter Blues.

The photo does not show clearly, but I have inked the edges of the die-cuts and added lots of sparkle.  The lace and pearls are from my stash and the flowers are a mixture from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts.  I used Dutch Doobadoo structure paste and fine glitter  to create an icy effect around the edge of the embossed background.  I am loving this paste! 

I do hope you have time to pop over and take a look at the very talented Design Team's work on the Kraftyhands  blog.  It is a fabulous Challenge, it would be great if you could join in.

As always, thanks for looking, and have a great day!
