Winter Wonderland in Blue and White

Sun, sun, glorious sun. After all of the rain that we have had lately, I am really enjoying the sunshiny days that we are having this week. There is just something about being done with winter clothes and seeing the flowers in my garden that makes me smile. That said, it may seem a bit odd that the card I have to share with you today is a Christmas card. Winter Wonderland Challenges is turning two and in honour of that I have decided to create a card fitting for the occasion.


The background papers were created using the emboss resist technique and a Hero Arts background stamp with some of my favourite distress inks. The focal image is actually a cut out from one of the Bo Bunny paper lines that was out this past winter. I have kept the card simple adding only a rhinestone centre to the snowflake and a sentiment charm from Making Memories.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
