CCC #19 ~ CC#23 ~ FS#61

Managed to join in 3 challenges with this card
Creative Card Crew had the prompt to "Create a Scene"
Colour Create this week was "Blue and White" with an added prompt of "vintage"
Friday Sketcher, well they provided the sketch obviously lol
this one created by Jacqueline

Not quite sure about the vintage part of the CC challenge but i tryed with a paper doily and some vintage photo distress ink!

I managed to use NO designer papers and insteed used a wallpaper sample, and some die cut tree's and snowflakes to "create the scene". This Snowman is another of Dustin Pike's fab freebie download images. Coloured with copics and cut out so i could place him amoungst the trees!
Finished with a couple of prima blooms of which i added some of the paper doily as centers as they looked kinda snowflake like, and i put a very tiny flake eyelet in the centre.
I added some clear zooms to the tiny flakes down the side to give then some depth.
I'm not 100% sure if i like how it came out, but maybe it will grow on me!
Thanks for hopping by!

This is such a fun scene. I love the way you've used the doily - I'm not usually a fan of them.
Have a great weekend.
