 Hello everyone,

I'm back with the last of my group of 5 big cards..these are my hand out cards for x clients whom I keep in contact with.

I think this could be my favourite..

All my bits together, using the sprayed flowers on this one..

But first, I needed to vintage up this frame using a dye ink from Altenew,
 my new favourite brown ink..and a postage stamp which I cropped and printed very small to fit inside.

and it did, perfectly..

This is the paper I used before that I never wanted to cut, but I did, and I liked it.

So, NOW I have all my bits..

The photo needed a little help, so I used strips of leftover card stock and added them to the sides of the photo..

Added all my pretty stuff along the bottom..

Made a bunch of floral and snowflakes for the top corner..

Put in place..

So pretty..I love the turquoise gems from my stash.

Dimension. Yea! baby..

and here she is..
after adding another upside-down bell and some white snowballs to fill gaps and for balance..

So there we go..

Thank you so much for stopping..
I'll see you tomorrow with something lighter and smaller..
