Waiting For You

Today's post is for one of my most favourite cards yet! Aurora "Waiting For You" by The East Wind. I made this card for my oldest daughter, who I won't be able to see this Christmas. While the name of the image is "Waiting For You", I feel like she looks rather pensive and is lost in her thoughts somewhere, so I made my card a "Thinking of You" card. I will definitely be thinking of my daughter as she has her Christmas in Wisconsin, while I spend mine in Alberta. It is an untraditional Christmas colour, but I think everything at Christmas all red and green and gold, gets a little boring.

As always, I coloured this with Copics. I used Michele R digital papers in Vintage Frost. The lace is from Maya Road.

I die cut the doily and covered it in Shabby White Frantage. The snowflakes, I punched out with a Martha Stewart punch, and covered in Shabby Pink Frantage.


I used Spellbinders dies for the ovals. I sprinkled some Frantage on the larger pink oval too.

I get my flowers from I Am Roses. I shabbied them up with some gesso, and twirled the stems as opposed to trimming them off.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you liked it. Feel free to leave a comment below!
