Color Challenge at HJC

This week at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge, we have an unusal color challenge, you actually have a choice between a number of combinations of colors, so much fun. Anyway I have used the Blue White and Silver combination for my card. I am using an image from one of our sponsors Fitztown, which this is called Winter 10, one of my favorite images from them. Some of the other ladies have done some great cards using our other sponsor Art by Miran, so you will have to pop by to check them out. I have used an embossing resist technique for the background first stamping the snowflakes from Snowflake Soiree set from Stampin Up on to the background embossed with clear embossing powder, then went over with Night of Navy Ink. I have added some icicles which I have die cut, a new one for me. for the edges of the card, and then added some beautiful two tone blue and a white rose to the card with some pine branch sprigs. To finish it off I added the greeting from Petite Pairs from Stampin Up.
Thanks for looking
I will enter this into the following challenges:
