Carol Singing with the Winter Wonderland Design Team

Good Morning to you all in the land of blog
Before I move on I have to apologise for the lighting on my photography, don't you just hate that shift to darker evenings - takes me ages to adjust my little light area :)
 

Today brings the next challenge at the


the theme is hosted by our very talented Kelly of the Icicle Team and it is

Carol Singers

Our fabulous sponsor this week is

who are offering the winner a £10 voucher

So here is my design team inspiration but do hop over and check out the fabulous creations by the rest of team Icicles.
This is the only angle I could get a good photograph of the colours on the image, it is an 8 inch square card so big too.
The gold surround creates such a reflection for the light :(
I was going for a vintage feel 

So the base colour is gold mirror card and the papers are that old I do not know the name of them, but I am trying to use up my old stash.  I used the Holly MS edge punch some ribbon from stash and the little white poinsettia, red large pearl and gold small pearls all from the Hobby House


Here is the image which is from Mo Manning

I would like to say hello to all my new followers, and I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave me such inspirational and kind comments, and this then allows me to hop on over and visit you in return.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges

I know the feeling with the photographs, I have just moved house and really struggling to find somewhere not too dark or too bright! Your card still looks fab though, love all the gold and traditional Christmas colours.
