Dove Of Peace Take Two

Hi all first may I apologise for not visiting you all unfortunately, my cold has got worse instead of better, even though I had my flu jab, it seems to have moved to my head which now feels like a ball of wet cotton wool. I managed to get this card finished without sneezing all over it, lol, I hope I am not putting you off.
I have used my Patchwork, Dove of Peace stamp again but kept the colours to blue and brown, I coloured it with Copics.  
The papers are a mixture, the base brown dot one is from Bearlymine Christmas Wishes digi set, the two blue papers are from the Paper Pad Challenge which is a blog that I found last week at Feline Playful  they supply the freebie papers for you to make a card with, I thought they were quite lovely and was inspired to make this card. I have mounted all the papers onto pastel blue card, I used Marianne Die cuts for the Snowflakes, the sentiment is from LOTV I added some silver card candy to the centre of the flakes.
I would like to enter this one into the following challenges:

I hope that you like my card and have enjoyed your visit, I will endeavor to visit as many of my buddies asap.  Hugs to all

Oh dear, I'm sorry your cold is being so stubborn. (My dad always recommends hot toddy - whisky, lemon juice, honey, hot water. He says it might not cure you, but it makes you feel better!!)

Fabulous, beautiful card! I'm loving the blue colour scheme, and the patchwork dove is adorable!

luv, Mags x

Oh - PS. How wonderful to hear Ravel's 'Bolero' on your blog! There's a fab 'Bolero' on the soundtrack to 'Moulin Rouge' which plays over the closing credits, too!

Hello Lorraine,

I couldnt help but giggle at the thought of you sniffling and sneezing all over your cards! We crafters are a mad bunch arent we? MOst folk would just sit and rest and get over their ailments but when theres a card to be made................we're off!

I just love the beautiful bird on your card, Ive never done blue and brown together yet so admire it when I see it done so I must give it a go!

Hope you are very soon feeling so much better.
