  3. Love the idea of using the blocks to create a window scene ( might want to case this idea ;) one day). The golden tree looks very elegant, and the card was very 'snowy' IRL. Thanks for doing such aa awesome job with my technique challenge.

  5. Oh my gosh Jacqueline what a gorgeous card! I feel as if I'm looking out a window at night during a snow storm. You achieved a terrific effect with this technique.

  6. Oh this is fabulous! I love the rich, deep colours you've used and the gold embossed tree is so elegant. Love it!
