We used to have snow....

This is a LO I did with an old photo, which is a bit scratched, of my daughter Tracey in the winter of 1967. Do you too remember the snow we used to have.
It took an age to get a colour of paper to match the very odd colours of the photo. I don't believe I put her in red pants, pink top and blue mitts. :o
I settled for the greeny blue shade of the snow (paper I've had for ages which I think was K and Co) with a little pink glitter card cut with edging scissors to contrast. I used snowflake 'Pop-It' shapes which I covered in Stampendous Ultra Fine Crystal glitter to encircle the focal point of the photo. The ribbons used top and bottom were Anita's stick ribbon with a border top and bottom of Christmas Paper Lace.

Shaped Cards..............

These cards were done for a Forum competition 'Shaped Cards'
The Fan card was done with a rubber stamp by Friends Stamps 'Angie Bhatia' and the small Japanese images are by Clarity Imagina
The screen card was done with a home-made template and a various assortment of stamps and embelishments including Clarity Imagina, Hero Arts, Anna Griffin and K & Co. 'Kim Hodges' papers.
The pyramid was made from another hand-made template and decorated and heat embossed in gold with Egyptian stamped images all from Clarity Imagina
These sort of cards are very difficult to get a good photograph of unless you have some sort of fancy lighting system so hope you just get the general idea of these.
Thanks for looking.
