In The Bleak Mid Winter





My husband noticed this digi and the tartan paper lying out at the weekend so this was a request from him. It reminds me of a really bleak day hence the title. I also added glitter to the trees and holly leaves.

Wow this is really beautiful Meg… striking but so peaceful looking too. I love the tartan paper with the deer image and the holly. It would be nice to put the words to In the Bleak Midwinter inside… I always mean to do more with the insides of my card but never get around to it though!
Hope you are well
Big hugs
Sue xx

I love reindeer on Christmas cards, I think they give such a traditional feel to a Christmas card. Your choice of colors works so well, and the card is so beautifully put together! I spotted it on MIM.

what a stunningly dramatic and eye-catching card! (for the record, i don't find it bleak at all, it's much too lovely for that!) :) thanks for joining our "creature feature" fun at JINGLE BELLES! ♥
