Simon Says goes Double Dutch

I've actually managed another card, although I have a sneaky feeling I'm too late for the Simon Says challenge, still I'm in reasonable time for the sketch at  Double Dutch  - although Erica will probably shout at me again because I went missing without asking permission - lol.
Simon Say's challenge is 'Thinking of you' and I thought this was a brilliant opportunity to make a Christmas card for someone who has lost her husband during the year  - I did want to wish a Happy or Merry Christmas, Season's greetings didn't feel right - so just a Christmas card with Thinking of you felt like the perfect answer.




I used this cute image I got from Alota stamps last year and haven't used as yet, it is coloured with Copics and their wings and the ground is 'Stickled' - (is anyone else like me - I use tons of stickles around Christmas time, then none at all during the rest of the year). The papers are from Magnolias White Christmas collection and called Snow Heaven and Snowy Lace and are so beautiful, a super bluey grey. The black circle is embossed with the Spellbinders snowflakes folder on core-dinations cardstock and distressed using the Basic Grey distressing kit. The black lace, the ribbon and pearls are from stash.
