Warm wishes

How do you get a winter card going that doesn't make you feel colder than ever?  Hopefully using the warmer blues and turquoise shades instead of white!  And wearing mitts-hat-coat and boots to feel warm & cosy on the inside.

The little girl is stamped and coloured with Lyra watercolour crayons.  Backing papers are torn to show white and layered, then highlighted with Kindyglitz for snow.  Trees diecut, inked in olive-y greens, Kindyglitzed (snow sparkle) and stuck down with the edges left free. The girl and the stamped sentiment circle are adhered with dimensional foam.  Gotta have some gems to  sparkle things up a bit.

Girl & sentiment stamp: Polka Doodles
Tree die: Marianne
