OLW 76 Colour in Winter.

Hi folks I'm back with another card:0) This time it's for Susan's challenge over at Simplicity, it's OLW 76 and this is the challenge


OLW76 Rules

1. A one-layer card is defined as a single layer of card stock folded in half. No other layers allowed.

2. Use white, gray, and a pop of bright color. (Black is allowed for sentiments if necessary.) Remember to keep embellishments to a minimum.

 I used Banana Frog stamps, I will really miss them :{
White detail embossing powder and a little bit of bling,





Here, on the right is the first version, I could not decide where to put the little star, finally it went on the last star in the sentiment, I only included this photograph because it occurred to me that it was by far the better photo. The sunlight behind  the card was a bonus but replicating that could be very difficult :0)
I hope wherever you are in your day that it's a good one, Gay x
