TAWS Be Inspired #16 Let It Snow

Morning Bloggers!!
Today starts a new 
Be Inspired Challenge
 The Alley Way Stamps
and here is the inspiration picture

So for my card 
I followed this weeks sketch from Retro Sketches

and came up with this......
Kind of hard to think of snow when I took this picture in 60 degree weather and sunshine...LOL
But I know the white stuff will be here before we know it!
I used a 2 of November's new release stamps from TAWS~
Framed and Jolly Holiday, as well as made my own sentiment using Alphabet Soup
If you look closely on the frame, I heat embossed snowflakes...just something little to add some additional texture to the white cardstock

Supplies Used:
Paper~ PTI~ Enchanted Evening
Echo Park~Winter Park
Framed, Jolly Holiday, Alphabet Soup
Ink~ Copics, Memento Tuxedo Black
Dies/Cuts~ My Creative Time~
Vintage Stitched Label Dies
Lowercase Fun Dies
Other~ Trendy Twine~
Blue Berry
Glossy Accents
Deliquesce Clear Embossing Powder
Snowflake button

I hope you have enjoyed my card and will play along with us!
