Scandinavian Season


This card is one of the samples on Stampin' Up's website today on the demo side. I'm not sure what happened to the bow and the image shifted and is crooked in the picture there, but this is what it looked like before the mailing.
I embossed the tree in silver with Veramark and shaded with Baja Breeze re-inker. Added some Ice square rhinestone brads and mounted to Going Gray and Basic Gray panels. Ski Slope paper, filigree brad, and white taffeta ribbon also used.
Can you tell I love this set? And I don't have a drop of Scandinavian blood in me, I'm mostly an Irish girl!

Looks gorgeous! And yes, it looks much better in your image here, than on SS today. I think someone was jealous of your talent and just started tearing things off of it. Whoever stopped them, glued on the main image again, but the bow was beyond salvaging. :-) How's that for a yarn? Truly, I love what you did with this card!
