Let it Snow!!

Hello everyone.....hope you are all staying warm!! We have had rain the last few days which we really needed!!! My DGS Cole is staying with us this week and he isn't too excited about the rain. We got him a tent for Christmas and he really wanted to play in it but I'm afraid it leaked.....maybe it will dry out tomorrow!! Anyway....
I made this simple card for today's Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast. Since half the country is blanketed in snow, I decided to celebrate all that pretty white stuff (you can tell I live in the half without snow...LOL)!! The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions Winter Wonderland set, the background layers were embossed with Cuttlebug folders, and I used a Martha Stewart punch for the snowflake. The button with twine and white Flower Soft finished it off .
Recipe:
Stamps: TE Winter Wonderfland
Paper: White, Hawaiian Shores from PTI
Ink: Vivid Aqua
Accessories: Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch, Button, Twine, Flower Soft


Have a wonderful day and be sure to add a little joy to your life today!!!

Yes, I can tell you live in the half without snow, it ceases to be pretty after the first week, he he. We have had loads of it over here in the UK but thankfully all gone now. Anyway, love your wintry card, very pretty. CoB
