WONDERFUL WINTER WISHES

MAN did I struggle this week with this CARD.  I had an idea in my head but it didn't translate very well onto the paper.  :( The color challenge was baked brown sugar, almost artichoke and cherry cobbler.  The SUO challenge was Let it SNOW, so I combined, and I am not a big fan of this card.  It's okay, you win some, you lose some, you like some and others…..not so much.  Happy Tuesday everyone!! Until next time…Karen

Karen,
Such a beautiful card. You have simply GOT to list your supplies and tell alittle bit about HOW you made the card. Like how did you make the snow falling? Was it brown paper with white polka dots or plain brown paper with white jel pen, which pen, if so?
Awaiting your reply,

Lovely card Karen but you simply MUST list your supplies. Also, did you use brown/white polka dot paper or white jel pen for snow?
Awaiting your reply,

This card took my breath away--it is so beautiful. I wish I had as much talent as you do to make a card like this.

Well, you may not be a fan but I think it is lovely! The color combination looks so festive and the snowflakes are perfect for our theme challenge- great job as always :-)

You have got to be kidding. This is the prettiest Christmas card I have seen in blog land to date. Love all the bright colors and the ribbon. Beautiful.

No sure what you had in your head, but I like this card and will probably CASE it leaving off the bow for mailing purposes, or go with a smaller ribbon for the bow.

You are too hard on yourself. This was one of the cards that stood out for me when I saw it on the SUO Challenge. It's beautiful! Thank you for all the heart-work you put into your creations!

This might not be your favorite but I love it! Did you punch holes on the one tree to let the red show through? What did you use for the white snow? I think this is a beautiful card!

This might not be your favorite but I love this card! Did you punch holes in the tree to let the red show through? And what did you use for the white snowflakes? Beautiful job!

Karen, I like this card a lot. I think you've captured a moment of Christmas peace, as the snow falls softly. Very nice.

Are you kidding? I absolutely LOVE this card. I love the dark brown sugar background - it makes the card feel vintage - and with the pops of white and the green trees, it's totally fabulous.

I like the kraft paper BG .
It turned out o.k. really.
I enjoy seeing Christmas cards in something other than red & green.

Karen, I LOVE this card! It jumped out at me from my blog feed, and I had to take a closer look. It's gorgeous. (Often the cards I least like, that I've made, are loved by others!)

This is a stunner of a card! Jumped out on my blog feed too. Just love the extra mile you go for that little something extra.
