Sending Warm Wishes

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.

Stamps: Stocking Full of Love (Stampabilities); sentiment (Hero Arts)
Paper: white cardstock (DCWV); blue cardstock (Bazzill); DP - Blue Poinsettia collection (Fred She Said Digital)
Embellishments: Circle and scalloped circle Nestabilities; snowflake border punch (EK Success); scallop border punch (Fiskars); snowflake punches (Oriental Trading); rhinestones; ribbon
Technique: Prismacolor pencils blended with mineral spirits
Finished Card Size: 6" square
