No One In Their Right Mind

Hello.  Welcome.  I have been working on a project with tissue paper, colouring my own, when a reminder for CASE-ing Christmas sent me in a white on white direction.  Uhhhh, yeah, right!!  Of course, you have immediately realised the problems inherent in switching between these two projects.  Messy crafter thought it was a good idea.  For a short time.  Then white on white became blue and white!!  LOL

I used Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder on the background layer.  I fussy cut three pennants in different sizes and added some stich detail using my craft knife.  The snowflake is Cheery Lynn Snowflake 2 which I cut twice.  I left the negative shapes in place on the lower one.  I added highlights with Stormy Sky distress inks.
