Winter Wonderland...This Way!

I had planned to post a different card today...but decided that this one is much more appropriate to today's weather! I used a Lili of the Valley stamped image that I received as part of a blog challenge prize called 'Sledging Buddies'. I coloured it using watercolour pencils...extending the line of snow to reach right across my card, then fussy cut it out. I used a piece of watercolour paper for the background, that I'd smooshed with shades of blue Distress Ink, and stamped and heat embossed my Simon Says 'Falling Snow' background stamp in 'Sparkling Snow' embossing powder by WOW. I stamped a sentiment from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous onto a piece of kraft card...then deciding that it looked like a sign, cut another strip of kraft to act as the post.
