DYSU Challenge #37 - Silver

Hello All,
Our challenge theme this week over at Do You Stack Up? is Silver which couldn't be any easier - silver paper, charms, ribbon or even paint. The choices are endless and we cannot wait to see your wonderful creations :0)

Our generous sponsors this week are:

Robyns Fetish - winners choice of 5 digi stamps or 4 digi stamps and 1 paper pack

Digi Darla - One months membership to the Digital Stamp Club

My Divine Inspiration - A prize package

Our very own  Miranda - 2 digi images

This week I got to use this lovely little image called "Bella da Snowlady" from Robyns Fetish which was a real joy to colour and which, by the way, is my very first Christmas card for this year - a bit late I know but hey better late than never!!! The trees and image have been attached with foam pads to give some dimension (and what looks like a black strip across the card is actually Mirror Card!!!)  Sorry about the lousy pictures - I seem to be having real problems getting decent ones at the moment. Think I may need to invest in a light box.

Here's the close-up

and here's the inside

Medium - Promarkers & Derwent pencils
Papers & trees - Nitwits "Joyful Hearts"
Snowflakes - MS punch
Mirror Board & gems - stash
Glitter - Silver Stickles

Thanks for looking and don't forget to take a peek at the rest of the DT's creations over at the Challenge blog. I'm sure they will inspire you to enter the challenge this week

I'll see you later with my DT card for Digi Doodle Shop Challenges.
