It's Monday again and time for another Whoopsi Daisy challenge. This week we would like to see you use 'The Colours Of Winter' on your projects. Great for all those lovely wintry Christmas cards especially as Christmas is just over five weeks away!!! Aaaargh! Who stole this year???

This week I have made a gatefold easel card for the first time. It didn't take too long to work out what to do but I will be the first to admit that it wouldn't stay shut until I added the ribbon. The main image, from Whoopsi Daisy, is made from two digi stamps and has been coloured with promarkers with flock added to their hats. I have used inks and glitter to distress the background in the hope that it looks like a winter's day. I then added a computer generated caption which I thought was rather apt. The sentiment at the bottom has been stamped and layered. All the leaves have been punched as has the flowers. I coloured the flowers with ink and added pearls to the centres. The snowflake brads have also had pearls added. Some pretty organza ribbon finishes the card. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

The inside with that gorgeous image coloured to the exact same colours as the papers finishes this off perfectly. Thanks for playing at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge and good luck.
