Afraid I'm not seeing photos on most blogs today Carol, Blogger seems to have one one him. But the thumbnail did tell me it was lovely blues and sepias, one of my fav colour combos.

Fantastic card Carole! Love the snowmen in brown and blue. You've brought together some gorgeous embellishments in your card design and they look wonderful.
Can't believe that you've got to wait five weeks when it probably doesn't take five minutes to look at your scan! Debra x
