Mountains and Valleys

Good morning to you all - and an incredibly cold and frosty one it is too.  I think winter has arrived brrr!

A male card today and one which I take great pleasure in showing because the message is just great.

My Card

base card - platinum pearlescent card  Brothersleep
white ribbed card - Brothersleep
Spellbinders - Resplendent Rectangles
Marianne Craftables - Tiny Trees
stamped image - Keep Climbing from Our Daily Bread Designs
sentiment - computer generated

The base card is just short of a C5 card.  5 x 7" was too small and C5 was just  a wee bit too big/  The backing paper is a digital one which started life as brown and orange plaid and I digitally altered it to match my card. I have just realised that I have no black/grey design/backing papers at all so I will really have to remedy that.  I typed the quote (an internet find) onto parchment paper and then fussy cut  a banner for it.

Just a very short post today. Hope you are all coping and keeping warm  The only place to be is in your craft room today I think.
