In the snow


I made this for a good friend of mine whose Birthday was two days ago. She is the friend who doesn't like cute cards but she loves horses. When I saw this image on a card on Chrissy's blog I asked her where it was from. She found it online as a free image and sent me the link so I was able to print it out. I wanted a wintery feel to the card without it looking like a Christmas card. The papers are Carta Belle Bundled Up, sentiment Craftwork Cards. I used a MS cherish border punch, Joy vintage flourish die and flowers from Wild Orchid. I also added some Stickles to the snow.
