Warm Wishes

Today I have a card that looks almost like my view out of the window. It snowed here in PA a couple days ago and with the balmy 24 degree temperatures we have today, the snow is still on the ground. Incredibly, they're forecasting temperatures to hit 62 by mid-week!

I based this card on 3 different challenges:




I began with all white papers, and the little touches of color were done with Copic markers. I embossed the background pieces using SU! fancy fan & CB swiss dots ef's. The embossed panels with divided with ric-rac strips done with an EK punch. The SNSS digital Rhubarb Builds a Snowman image was printed on white, and die cut using SB circles. The sentiment was computer generated, and the final touch was some silver stickles to look like snow on the ground. The silver and white snowflake brads have been in my stash forever!



Wishing you a warm day, and thanks so much for coming by!

Carol

I love your 'snow white' card. Isn't it great to use some of the things you've had so long? And, it helps create a beautiful card.
Crazy weather. We have a promise of more rain today. UGH!

Kids were playing hockey out on the lake, and that does not happen very often. I almost wish we would have gotten a bit more snow, since this was not enough for snowmen. I love your version, and the snowy white with touches of color!
