Winter Wishes

Hello crafty friends and visitors! Today I have a card I made just for fun. It was a late Christmas card to my good bloggy friend, Niki of Pawsitively Creative. I'm sure she appreciates the snow on the card more than on her driveway!

The blueish-grey background and the birch trees were done pretty much in the same fashion as I did on my Winter Birthday card, except I used some grey paints on the back embossed panel and used different products for the "snow". I used the Tim Holtz Snowflurries Texture Fade for the background and his Birch Trees and Mini Paper Snowflakes Thinlits dies, Impression Obsession Deer Trio and Ranger Grit paste with a Mixture of Prima Art Sugar, Distress Rock Candy Glitter and some chunky glitter for the snow. I added white pen to the snowflakes and glitter on the deer. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz Holiday Talk sticker, and the musical background is vintage sheet music from my stash.

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:

-Scrapy Land Challenge #56-Let It Snow I used 2 Sizzix sets and 1 Impression Obsession die.
-Noor! Design December Challenge 25-'Sparkle' Hopefully you can see a bit of the sparkle!

Thank you for stopping by today! Your visits and comments sure make my day!
Hugs and Blessings!
Sara Emily
UPDATE: Yippee!

  16. This is awesomely done! Sorry for the late comment. I would like to invite you to link with us again for our first Challenge this year at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with the encouragement found in 1 John 4:18-19 which tells us, "There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us." Have a blessed day!
