Cozy Winter Wishes

It’s time for a new challenge at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and this time the challenge is…..

‘All Wrapped Up’.

This week, as always, we are sponsored by The Paper Shelter and Veronica & Pedro are offering a fabulous prize of $30 to spend at their site.

Challenge prize badge

If you use a TPS image in your creation you will receive the full $30 to spend on their gorgeous designs, and if you haven’t used a TPS image then you will win 3 Digis of your choice from their site.

I’ve chosen to use one of the gorgeous pre-coloured images with background, Cozy Winter Wishes, for my card today and create a lovely wintery card.


I’ve printed the pre-coloured image with background and then printed the pre-coloured image on it’s own. I’ve cut out the pre-coloured image and layered this on top of the image with background to add some depth. I just love the pretty colours in the background and the blue fit perfectly with my base card colour.

Here’s another photo…


I’ve edged my base card with the Cherish ‘Around the Page’ Punch by Martha Stewart. I have then added a Snowflake border to the top edge and a couple of Snowflakes to the sides to which I have added a rhinestone and some Dazzling Details to for some sparkle. The snowflakes are all Joy Craft dies. 

One last look….
