CTD67 and SC253

I found a little time to stamp this afternoon, so I made this card for a double challenge. The CTD67 to use Artichoke, Soft Sky, Kraft and Dusty Durango. I also used the sketch challenge from SC253. The image is one Michelle from StampersDream.com sent me recently, but I'm unable to find it in the store, so it may be sold out? I colored the image with Tombows and a wet brush on wc paper. I began with a kraft base, layering artichoke and durango behind the soft sky dsp horizontal panel. The triangles and main image were matted with black. The triangles were cut from soft sky textured cardstock and the snowflakes were punched with a MS punch and covered with glistening snow writer. I also added some of the snow writer on the wreath around his neck.
Thanks for the great challenges ladies, and thanks for stopping by :)
