Winter is coming - at Moving along with the Times Challenge this week!

Good morning all

I'm here today to share my DT card for Moving Along With The times Challenge this week.  It's my turn to host over there this week and I chose the theme 

Winter is coming
(Winter themed or fantasy based Game of thrones theme)

I got the idea for the name from Game of Thrones - I watched the TV series and decided to read the books - a real epic task! - I'm really enjoying them - just about at the end of book 2 so I've got pleanty more to keep me busy

Anyway - I was all full of an idea that I would make a fabulous dragon card - and I know there are some fabulous dragon images around - only I didn't find one!! 

So I stuck with the easy option and made a winter themed card instead 
(I'm so disappointed with myself lol)

I used a fab image from Stampart design by Kathryne at Whimsystamps
he's called Owl-ways Winter and is available here 
the sentiment is also included as a bonus set

You may recognise the papers if you visited me yesterday - yes the same one! - I think I must be on a tartan thing just now lol -  But after checking out my Christmas papers I just liked this one best so here it is again!! -not to mention more Wild Rose studios dies that I really do think I'm in love with. 

This is what I did....

Image and Sentiment - Owl-ways Winter from Stampart Design by Kathryne
Coloured with copics
Papers - Dovecraft 12 days of Christmas
Card - Papermania - Krafty Christmas pack
Ribbon -Crafty ribbons
Holly berry - papermania
Berries on holly dies - viva decor red pen
Inking on dies -TH bundled sage DI
Glamour dust for added sparkle!
Dies - spellbinders circle and Scalloped circle
        - Wild Rose Studios Holly flourish and Small frame from Snowflake frame set

We'd love to see you at MAWTT this week
