Snowy couple

After my grungy and distressed card posted this morning comes a card with nice clean lines. The image is from Crafty Sentiments coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I had forgotten I had this Marianne icicle die until I saw somebody else use it and it fitted this sketch perfectly along with the faithful MS punched snowflakes. The corner was made with a Sizzix die and the letters came from an old scrapbooking kit.
