PSC61 - Winter Wonderland

Despite temperatures in the 40's and 50's this week, our farm still has much of the grass covered with snow. I'm always happy to stay inside and look outside at the lovely white landscape. Although I hate being out in the cold, I dearly love making projects that feature the white stuff.

The challenge this week at The Perfect Sentiment is to CREATE A CARD WITH A SENTIMENT FOR WINTER/USE A WINTER IMAGE OR ANY EMBELLISHMENTS, EMBOSSING FOLDERS, ETC. TO GIVE YOUR CARD A WINTER FEEL. GO AHEAD AND THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX IF YOU HAVE TO...CUPS OF COCOA, ETC.

I found this very old piece of snowflake lace paper in my stash the other day and decided to use it as a background for my Cuttlebug embossed snow and image. I love to mix these colors with Kraft cardstock and silver. Unfortunately, I was wearing a red shirt and I'm afraid the glitter on the snowflake picked up the red hues. It was cut with Cricut Art Philosophy. It was covered with Glitz Glitter Gel, both Stardust and Silver. The cute, characters are matched with a cute sentiment, both from a Close To My Heart set called Bundled Buddies. They were colored with CTMH alcohol ink markers - Sky, Indian Corn Blue, and Pacifica. The brown tones were Copic markers.
 
I hope you'll join our challenge this week. We'd love to see your interpretation of Winter Wonderland.
 
I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:

Vickie, this is such a pretty card. I like the silver sparkly bands you've used across the two corners, and the embossing is lovely. Well done. Thank you for entering this week's challenge at Card Crafter's Circle.
