Monochromatic with the Winter Wonderland

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees my first challenge of the new year at the  

Where Team Icicles are showcasing their beautiful creations, with little old me hosting with the theme of

(only one colour apart from skin hair and fur) 

our wonderful sponsors this week

offering the lucky winner 3 stamps of their choice :)

Just a reminder that the Wild Rose Studio New Release is out and you could win some candy see the post below or the one above :)

So here is my take on the theme but don't forget to hop over to the main challenge blog to check out the wonderful inspiration there for you.
I decided to use on of the many Xmas Toppers from the Hobby House this one is using a Mo Manning image and the topper set is called Eskimo Kisses, a lovely quick way to make a card.

But you know me I have to add all my delicious embellies
Those base layers and contrast are a deep navy blue card
The papers are Kanban, the doily, ribbon, button, twine, flower, wooden embellishment are from my stash.
I used the Hobby House Shabby Blue frantage on the wooden embellishment and the white flower and added if you can spot it one of the Hobby House Christmas charms.

I added to the topper some liquid appliqué for the snow on the ground and falling all around.

As always I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors and followers for their inspiring comments, which encourage me and allow me to hop over in return to see their gorgeous work and welcome my new followers.

I would like to enter the following challenges
ABC Christmas - A for Anything
Simon Wednesday Challenge - Ice Inspiration
Country View Challenges - Monochromatic
