Snow Queen

Good morning to all my lovely friends and followers today is another Challenge launch over at Crafty Ribbons Challenge this sees the launch of our 12 days of Christmas challenges and we are running twelve weekly challenges in the lead up to Christmas The DT members have each chosen a theme for each week and today is the first challenge and the Christmas theme is anything other than Red or Green and you must also include a ribbon
For my DT card I used a stamp  I've had for a while from LOTV called Snow Queen and decided on a blue and gold colour scheme.

Carole, this is breathtakingly beautiful... all of your creations bring such joy to my heart! The image is adorable and I love the base for her. The color palette is exquisite and your poinsettias couldn't be lovelier. Beautifully designed and will be treasured by the recipient. :o) Have a wonderful day!

Hugs and blessings,
Karen
