ROMANTIC CHRISTMAS

Hi all this is just a quickie from me today just to let you know that I am still around even though I have been missing most of the week.  I am afraid I seem to have lost my will to craft at the moment, I really don't know what is wrong with me, however, I have managed to make some DT cards but not much else except this one.  I was trying to think of something that I could make that was a little different and came up with a tent card but with an acetate front.  I have used a pre coloured Paper Shelter image called Carol Singing, I used my graphics programme to insert the image into a rose frame paper also from the Paper Shelter.  I hope that you are able to see the gold glitter that I have added to the roses, leaves and the female image also on the ground for a glittery snow effect.  The ribbon at the bottom of the card is also glittery, I added a bronze metal butterfly, sentiment, lace, pink pearls and double bow.
here is a side view. 
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Many thank for visiting I am hoping to get around to see you all over the weekend, I have made a start on my commenting and I am liking what I am seeing.  I am hoping that the more I see of your beautiful work the more motivated I will become.  Have a lovely weekend.

Hi LOorraine, such a pretty card! I know how you feel at the moment, as I'm a bit down in the dumps myself. What turned me around was tipping all my stamps out on the floor and looking through them, I then did the same with the papers and before I knew it, I had a pile of stamps that I wanted to play with and hadn't touched for a long time. Hope you're on the crafting path again soon honey. xxxx
