Mo's Dream Team Blog Hop - A Fairytale

This is my third post for today - please scroll down for my Simply Betty Stamps and Spesch Stamps Release Day Cards.

This month's Dream Team theme for the blog hop is Fairytales. You should have arrived here from the uber talented Cheryl's blog - but if you want to go back to the start you need to visit our wonderful host of the month, Elaine's blog. The complete hop order is listed at the bottom if you get lost.

I thought these cuties would make a perfect Hansel and Gretel. Their names are actually Brady and Chloe and they can be found HERE in Mo's store. I decided to make a recessed window card to get some more depth of field to my scene. The gingerbread house was a colouring page I found on the internet.

I made the pine tree using my McGill fern punch and used 3 different greens. I then added some liquid pearls on the edges for snow before sprinkling on some glitter.

Your next stop on the hop is the amazing Mina's blog.

Here's the blog hop order if you need it - Elaine, Rosette, Lori, Jak, Liza, Peri, Cheryl, ME, Mina, Shell - you can find the links for all of these blogs on my left sidebar under Mo's logo.
