Winter Stream

     One more Christmas card to share, this time using a gorgeous image from Sparkle n Sprinkle.

I took my inspiration from the sketch at My Favorite Things.

Sketch Challenge 343 #mftstamps

     The image is colored with ProMarkers, with sparkle gel ink on the snow and water.  I tore the image piece along one edge for some distressed texture.  The snowflake paper is die cut (Sue Wilson die) and laid over a piece of turquoise CS which I had embossed with my "Linen" folder.  I added dots of glitter to each tiny snowflake but it's nearly impossible to see it in the photo.

     I printed the sentiment, hand cut it, and matted it with a scrap of the same CS as the background.  The silver ribbon was in my Christmas stash and I've used a lot of it this month on all my Christmas-in-July cards.
