Winter Wishes



Good morning blog friends ... I have a card to share that will be winging it's way across the ocean to a sweet blog friend ... I missed getting a Christmas card to her and so decided to create a special winter one ... which also qualifies for the new challenge over at Moxie Fab World ... where Gray (or grey as it is here in the UK) is the New Black ... 
I have been playing around with some silver grey fabric I had in my stash ... and I love the look of it against the MME glitter paper (boy this paper will last forever!) ... 



I used my Sizzix to cut some edging and lots of circles which I used to make my embellishment 
topped with another of those pretty silver and pearl centres ... these actually came from some enormous earrings I bought in the sales ... I am always on the look out for these kind of thing and sometime I see the lady on the till eye me up ... probably thinking "what on earth is she thinking ... buying these"
But hey, there were 4 of these on one earring alone ...  at 70p for the pair ... I'm getting a bargain!


So Sylvia ... I am sorry that this is late ... but I hope it is worth the wait and Thanks ever so much for your handmade jewel ... 


and you have the most amazing handwriting! ... how I wish I could write like that (sigh) 
Have a wonderful Sunday 
Till soon

~ Ros ~

Ros, I love your entry for the Moxie Fab World! this is a gorgeous card! Just amazing. I love the bobble used for the flower center!
I am glad you got your card, I am sorry it was late! Maybe if I would send them out early, it would be there on time. It is funny because I was thinking about this earlier this morning! Have a wonderful Sunday!

Sylvia is a lucky girl and I know for sure she will LOVE this card. I love the soft and elegant shades of this. You know how to make grey look elegant and chic. Your card is breathtaking. And I love that pearl/metal flower centerpiece;a nargain for a jewel!!
