Linda gave us a wonderful challenge for the Ways to Use it....based on your low temperature, warm or cool colors on your card. Even though I live in the south, we are fairly cold here too! The low is 21F with no wind chill.
The image is a digi and I thought the color palette was perfect ;) The framing papers are from dear sweet Nancy...she sent me so much, excellent cardstock! Thank you Nancy!!!
Hope this Polar Vortex will be going back home soon!

Your coloring of the fuchsias is spot on! And the layering paper of shades of purple really stand out against the white..how pretty! I can't believe it's so cold for you, too...And don't speak of the Polar you know what..it is returning..Monday and Tuesday here will not get above zero and the lows are predicted to be -20 and -18..I need to go to a beach somewhere!

This is absolutely beautiful my friend. I love the Digi image and your colouring is amazing. The papers are gorgeous too (Nancy is very special hey). I had to convert 21F before I could work out how cold you are.......brrrrrrrrrr that's minus 6C. I can't imagine being that cold!! stay warm my friend and keep creating these beautiful cards.
Don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.

Kathleen, this is stunning.....I find the fushia to be one of the most interesting flowers.....and the hardest to keep alive. They are so delicate, and you captured their colors perfectly. I hope you warm up soon and that nasty cold goes back up north. It's sad when Alaska is warmer than some of the southern states. Thanks for gracing the gallery with this beauty.

Oh the colouring of your fuschias, Kathleen - exquisite!! A beautiful, beautiful cool card, such wonderful colouring!! I, like Susie, cannot imagine such cold temperatures - I guess it is the perfect weather to stay indoors and create beautiful cards!!
