A Christmas Scene

Good Morning,

Very frosty here this morning, everywhere is white and there was some fog and mist earlier but the sun is breaking though now so it looks like it will be a beautiful but cold day.

We have a new challenge for you over on My Time to Craft where this week our challenge is to:

Make a Scene
(It can be sunny, snowy as long as it is a scene)

I used a Cottage Cutz die, with a little colour on it put onto a piece of starry dark blue vellum, the backing paper is Lili of the Valley and I added a star cut with Nesties, a ribbon and a sentiment. 

Hope you have a lovely weekend whatever plans you have.
