Time Out Challege #74 - Theme Challenge

Hello friends!  There's a new challenge over at the Time Out blog.  This time it's a theme challenge and the theme is winter.  There's also a twist to use white on white with some neutrals added.
 
I'm sort of twisting this challenge.  I needed to create a blue sky, but the rest is white.  I watercolored the blue panel with a distress ink and splattered it with water.  Then I die cut some snowy hills and layered them on the watercolor piece.  The deer was also die cut from white.  What a cutie!  I wanted some trees in the background, so three were die cut from white as well and they were all layered in the hills.  The bottom looked too blank, so I added ribbon.  I haven't used ribbon in a while!  I stamped the sentiment and added the sequins.  Oh, and everything was sprayed with shimmer spritz (again!). 
 
This challenge is sponsored by Uniko.  You can see what the prize is and more from the Time Out design team and our guest, Claire, on the Time Out blog.
 
Thanks for stopping by!

This is a lovely Winter scene with so much detail. I think the sky looks amazing and the placement of sequins just perfect. I really like the way you have tied the ribbon and keeping it white really still keeps the serene feel to your card x

What a great way to keep using those winter scenes! Love the winter birthday sentiment and the fantastic blue sky bg, Lisa. The white cutout is darling.

This is wonderful Lisa. Your sky is wonderful. Love that little deer sitting in the snowy hills with the trees. The addition of the ribbon is perfect and I so love that sentiment!

I haven't used ribbon for a while either - but I think that you have inspired me! I love the way you used it to finish the card - it is perfect! The rest of the card is gorgeous too - I love the pretty watercoloured sky and that little deer really is adorable!

So pretty. I especially like the layered die cuts for the hills covered in snow and the ribbon treatment is beautifully elegant. Hugs Bev (Uniko) x
