GREY GREEN and WHITE for Colour Create

Happy Thursday everyone!!
Today I am off work and that is not a normal for a week day!! I have some things to do around the house and then I think I am going to go out Christmas shopping and maybe to lunch.

yahoooooooo LOL.......

This week the colors are

GREY, GREEN and White.
the extra option is silver or acetate

I have to tell you that I struggled all the way through this card 3 times!!!

This was a very hard challenge for me. I think it is because these are not normal colors for me to work with and my card looks so plain and drab!!!!!
I sure am not liking this one at all!!!!

But I do hope that it will inspire you come and have a play with us at the challenge blog.

I have used the very cute #3080 Tilda with fur. You can purchase her at Magnolia-Licious.

And guess what!?!?!?! She even comes in mini form!!!! The number for the mini is #3080 MINI Tilda with fur.
I have used my copic markers to color my image.

I have used papers from Deja Views, EK Success and bazzill cardstocks
The sentiment is on the paper that I have used.

Embellies that I have used are silver spacers, silver snowflakes, rhinestones, pearl brad, satin ribbons, paper lace by K & Company and small silver domes.

Tools used, sewing machine and McGill snowflake punch.
I have used snow effects and stickles on the tree and stickles on the snowflakes.

I have used the sketch from Create4Fun.

Stampaive: Snow/Snowflakes
