Winter in the Mountains

Today's Challenge at CD Sunday was chosen by Margaret who would like to see "Winter in the Mountains" cards. After looking at lots of images I settled on this one from Pollyanna Pickering, because  in the wild, giant panda are only found in the remote, mountainous regions of central China, and as you can see from the frost/snow it's winter.

I kept my card quite simple so that it would be suitable for either a female or male, I can always add embellishments if I decide to send it to a female recipient.

Head on over to the challenge and see the other DT cards then please join us, as long as you use an element from a CD and name the CD you used you will be eligible for a top 3 pick and a prize from Margaret, I look forward to seeing your creations.

Have added template for card, hoe it makes sense

I love Pandas and this is a beautiful striking image. It certainly does look cold. A clever shaped card. I never seem to have luck with those. My square is still my comfort zone.

What an amazing image Meg and one that certainly fits the brief perfectly. That brilliant card design showcases the image just right xx

Keeping to neutral papers and a decorative fold is a great way to make this image stand out. I don't think this card needs anything more, even if you choose to give it to a female.
