Vintage Winter Birthday - PLUS great news!

Hi there,

It is the beginning of December (just in case you had not figured that out for yourselves), and I have a new challenge and a new technique in focus over on facebook. I have made a card that incorporates both the challenge and the technique. So here is my card:

There are two pictures because I couldn't get the picture steady without the flash, but you cannot see the butterfly properly with the flash. The image was found on google and can be found here - http://freevintagedigistamps.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/free-digital-stamp-umbrella-hat-lady.html. I coloured the image with Promarkers - Polar Blue, Winter Berry and Icicle from the Winter Ltd Ed. and Cobalt Blue, Fuschia Pink, Arctic Blue, Pale Pink, Primrose and Lemon from Set 2. I used these colours to give a vintage, winter feel to the summery image. I then added peel-off's from the me-to-you range for the snowflakes on the image, and from my general stash for the sentiment and butterfly.

The Technique in Focus that this card uses is - THE RULE OF THIRDS. Please find more details at crafting techniques.

The challenge at Monthly Themes for Crafting is an inspiration photo this month:
