Lots to do - Winter Flowers

Wonderful 'new' occassions marked by your projects last week thank you for sharing with us at Lots to do Great start to the new year and enough inspiration to keep us going for the whole year.

This week we are all about Winter Flowers any winter flowering bloom in any form you like.

Snowdrops are amoung my favorites they are so pretty and delicate like shy little winter smiles. Happily there are a couple of clusters growing and spreading in my garden and I'm looking forward to seeing them soon.

This card uses two Diamension Forth stamps on white pearlised paper and white card.   The snowdrops were stamped and embossed on Vellum coloured gently from behind cut out and layered on the paper leaving the flower heads un-attached for a little movement.

Please do pop over to Lots to do to see what the others have made and leave a link to your winter flower.
