City Crafter ... I'll Be Home for Christmas

Hey there! ...
I'm a little late posting this morning ... I always schedule my DT posts the night before ... but just as I was about to write I got a phone call from a very distressed nephew ... who just wanted to talk really ... by time I came off the phone I had completely forgotten about the post!

So as you all know it's  City Crafter Challenge day and this week our hostess is sweet Kirsty who has given us this beautiful inspiration photo


Kirsty is asking that we make a card or project inspired by the photo

Well who could resist such beautiful colours? And there's a prize up for grabs this week ... No, I'm not going to tell you what it is ... you have to pop over to the blog to check it out ... and whilst you are there ... take a look at all the lovely projects from our DT this week ... and our Guest Designer Lynnda
Here's my card


Digital paper from Gennifer Bursett ... which I stamped and embossed with those silver snowflakes


The background paper shape was cut on the cameo ... as were the hearts ... the white one I embossed ... following the embossed wrapping paper in the photo and  I stitched a little silver bead into the centre 


... and added little pearls to capture the baubles in the photo

I adore this colour palette and can't wait to see what you lovely people come up with ... 

Thanks for visiting ...
Have a beautiful day
