Snow Inspired

This card is a redo of one I had in my stash. The original card is shown on the left. Nothing wrong, just something CAS from my beginning stamping days. I wanted to change it up a bit as the base was a bit tattered and decided to try to jazz it up a bit. We've been blessed with an abundance of snow in my world. The news guys said we've already our average snow accumulation for the entire winter and it's not even officially started! I love where I live and the snow is part of the beauty. Scroll to the end of the post for some snow pics.

Since I've seen a lot of it, I played with some fun flurry inspired paper from DCWV. I ended up keeping the same basic layout in my redo but love the card so much more. The colors in the DP pick up on the shimmer of the pearl ex. An extra strip of ribbon and a few baubles finish it off.

My Creation

Image Detail
I did the standard technique of layering puddles of embossing powder and reheating before I stamped my image. After it cooled down, I trimmed it into a square and painted on pearl ex for shimmer.

Real Life Inspiration
Can't leave without sharing a few pics of my winter wonderland.

My concrete window art pieces are even chillier with a blanket of snow; and the icicles grew over night on the eave. 
Our trailer was empty last night and is now filled with a load of snow.
Looks like the bird feeder needs to be filled - and shoveled!
