Winter at Delicious Doodles

It's Team A's turn over at Delicious Doodles Challenges to host.

Winter Themed Makes is the challenge.

Well there's plenty of winter scenes to be had - just by looking out of your own window. So many places are affected by heavy snow at the moment and I hope that those that are affected are keeping safe and warm. Please spare a thought for any that you know that might need a helping hand at this time.
There are other colours out there, if you look hard enough under the white stuff.  I decided to choose the evergreen of ivy as a theme.
Using two images from Delicious Doodles, a simple card, but one that will be suitable for many different occasions. Hence the lack of sentiment - until I know the recipient.
I used The Ivy Queen and Ivy Corner twice to form the image panel. Then using almost every shade of green in my promarker collection proceeded to colour it all in.
The papers are from the Christmas collection of Daisy and Dandelion that I had acquired.
The base paper being the large snow flakes and the border was cut from the tiny snowflake paper.
Yep - cobwebs. Apart from the fact they have more than 6 sides, if you squint they could pass as snowflakes, lol. There are snowflakes there as well - another punch from my collection cut from a piece of green DP in my scrap box. Some green glitter and patina stickles for a bit of shine.
The ribbon was from my "bit bag" as well.

So, what will we find linked to Mr Linky at the Delicious Doodles Challenge blog this next week? Can't wait to see.

I would like to eneter this into the challenge over at
