The theme for this week's House Mouse and Friends challenge is seasons. I chose to do another winter theme card. Maybe they make me feel cooler somehow in the heat we've been having.
This card didn't turn out exactly like I pictured it. I'm thinking maybe I went too far with the snowflakes. The little ones on the image are the pieces that were cut out of the border when I punched it. I also added some snow texture paint to the image. The background of the image is sponged with blue ink and I highlighted the snow with blue chalk ink. The photo is really kind of deceptive. The sentiment is stamped clearly. I'm not sure why it looks faded in the photo.
