Winter's Garden


Greetings!  It is an Arctic Tundra where I live.  How about where you are?  I love this collection of images called Winters Garden: Perfect for our current weather conditions, and probably why I was drawn to these image when creating pieces for Gecko Galz recently. Just a bit of stamping this time, using snowflakes from Oxford Impressions.  I, instead, worked mostly with digital images that I printed, trimmed, and arranged on my card front.  The young woman climbing down a ladder tells a story for me.  She wants to get away from her mundane life and take a walk in the fresh air in the woods nearby, soaking up the beauty of nature.  A snippet of lace, pearl gems, and Stickles complete my card.  I am also entering my card over at Simon Says Monday Challenge where the current challenge is to make a project using "Blues."  Thanks so much for stopping by.

So beautiful! I love the images and the idea of a beautiful winter garden! It's very cold here in Maryland, too. But, it's going to warm up by week's end, so that's something to look forward to! Stay warm!

This is not only a beautiful card, Yvonne, but an amazing piece of monochromatic art! I love the winter blues here (but, they are the good kind!). Yep, we are freezing in Boston, too!
