Winter Has Arrived

Wednesday, January 9, 2019

The weather here has been mostly mild.  In fact, yesterday it was 59 degrees late morning!  Yes, that's really unusual for the midwest in January and today we're back to winter with low temps and snow flurries!

So it seemed appropriate to create something a bit frosty :)  I layered black cardstock onto the card base.  Then I created a panel using Newton's Nook new Plaid Stencil set and distress oxide ink (Broken China and Black Soot).  I cut red cardstock for the frame cut with one of My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle Frames.  For the inside of the frame, I blended Broken China then cut a strip of glitter paper for 'snow'.  This sweet little snowman and sentiment are from Newton's Nook Frozen Friends. To finish, I added some clear, sparkly sequins.


Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:
