Made of Snow

I had to giggle when I started making this card. It's currently 91˚ outside so I am no where near the chill of winter. Wishful thinking I suppose!!! I've had this set sitting on the corner of my desk just waiting to be inked up. It is soooo much fun to play with. I do believe I'll be using it a lot this winter. I followed sketch #24 over on the Papertrey Ink forum. For the accesories, I did a combo of paper piecing or coloring with Prismacolors and OMS. The hat and little glove by the tree are both raised with dimensionals. I used a white gel pen to go over the dots on the scarf. Tammi, you inspired me to do a distressed background! I inked up the Linen background with Creamy Caramel. Stamped off once of scratch paper and then onto the cardstock. The edges are sponged with Close to Cocoa. I really love this color combo too. It's so serene and pretty. Thanks for stopping by!
