Set of Christmassy-ish cards

ScrapAfrica challenge no65 | mood board

This week I have made a page inspired by the blue/winter mood board in the ScrapAfrica challenge no65. I love the delicate blues and wintery feel about it so I used a very old photo of a 6-year-old me sledging down a snowy slope. Good old days… As always, I created loads of layers of texture…
