The snow may fall...


I guess there was no escaping the snow showing up to influence a card or two of mine these days. As if I can't get my fill of the white stuff just by walking out the door, I started searching it out in my paper stash as well. Actually, I didn't have to search too hard as this card completely came together around that snowflake swirl die cut. It's been sitting on my desk for way too long and I finally had to put it to use. My coloring time was limited so I found this Warm Wishes Pure Innocence to go with it... bonus points for crossing another stamp off the un-inked list. ;)
The papers I settled on were unexpected at first. I was originally looking for a Basic Grey paper pad with similar aqua hues, but when that proved elusive I grabbed this Timeless pad with its brown, cream and black combo. In the end I think it created a nice contrast for the aqua to really stand out against.

And with that it is time for me to get ready to brave the outdoors once again, I won't look as fashionable as this Pure Innocence but I'll be bundled up, that's for sure!
Later gators!
