Simon Says ,,,, Silver/Blue/White

Good Morning all :-) Time for a new theme on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge , This week we would like to see the lovely cool shades of ,,

you can add other colours too if you like but these should be the most obvious :-)

you don't necessarily have to make a Christmas item, it can be for any occasion :-)

The DT have all used Penny Black stamps this week and if you have them we would love to see them too but it isn't necessary to enter the challenge :-)

Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 spree to her fantastic Simon Says Stamp store and she will pay the postage too !! BRILLIANT

For my card I used this very cute Penny Black Arctic Bus stamp :-)

I inked the image with Memento ink and coloured with Copics. I then inked the edges with Stormy Sky Distress ink. The snowflake paper is from Magnolia and I tore a piece of white card and embossed with a Tim Holtz Swirl folder for the snow :-) I used loads of Star Dust Stickles and I used Diamond Dust for the icy slope :-) The snowflake was made using a Martha Stewart Himalayan punch and the sentiment is from a LOTV Christmas set which is currently OOS but will be back in store soon :-)
