Winter Wonderland at Tuesday Throwdown

     It's so good to be back posting for our newest challenge at Tuesday Throwdown after we took our usual break for the Christmas and New Year holidays.  Hope your own celebrations were warm and joyous.      :-D

     This week, we have a theme of "Winter Wonderland" and we're sponsored by My Grafico.  They supplied the DT with images from their "Frosty Friends" set and I combined two of those images into one for my card.


I used a color combo from DRS Designs (#183.)

     I colored the image with chalks and a touch of ProMarkers plus lots of glitter on the snow and snowman.  The image piece is cut with one of my brand new border dies from Spellbinders.  Yes, Santa was good to me this year. :-D   I thought cutting it that way made a really interesting shape.  I layered it onto turquoise CS and added that to a background made with dp from SU and Paper Studio.

     The sentiment was done with a computer font, fussy cut and matted, then added to the card front.  The little bow is one of those I sew together by the dozens and toss into the stash for later use.  This one was made with white ribbon and dyed with ProMarkers to get the shade of blue I wanted.
