Snowflakes ~ Cute Card Thursday Challenge

The challenge at CCT this week is to have snow or snowflakes on your card. I have both! This is one of my favorite images from Magnolia's Winter kit. Little Edwin is taking such good care of Tilda. It reminds me of my hockey player boyfriend (now my husband) teaching his klutzy girlfriend (that would be me) how to skate!
I had originally bought this DP because I knew it would make a fantastic background for some of my stamps. It is a 12 x 12 piece and I cut out the piece that makes my happy couple look as if they are on an outdoor rink! I kept my coloring to just a few colors in hopes that it would look soft and dreamy! I added some flock to the cuffs of Tilda's coat.
  • Stamps: Magnolia Winter Kit 2008, Stampin up Circle of Friendship
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black. SU! Blue Bayou
  • Paper: SU! Blue Bayou, Best Creations Inc. Dp
  • Coloring: Distress Ink
  • Embellies: SU! Felt Snowflakes, Stampendous Fun Flock
Have a great day! I will have a new card with a fun background scene tomorrow!
