Snowy, Wintery Day....

Good morning! I have woken up once again to a bit of snow on the ground. Just a dusting, but the temps have dropped, and it reminds me that it is only January. I have to admit, like most people, this is my least favorite month. It is cold. Dreary. Dark. But to try and put a positive spin on it, at least snow "looks" pretty! ; ) So here is my snowy card that I created using the Winter Wishes set by Crafty Secrets. I broke out the ole' Copics and colored away!  I added liquid applique to her snowball and pom pom on her hat.  The circular frame was created with 2 sizes of circular Spellbinder's dies.  I added liquid applique to it as well.  While I heat it and it gets puffy, I sprinkle glitter over it.  The heated applique "grabs" the glitter, so there is no need for glue.
I used papers I printed from the Crafty Secret's Vintage CD.  I print a bunch at a time and keep them on hand!  The flower was made with felt and a Sizzix die.  I added some white pom pom trim, a bit of satin ribbon, twine, and pearls.  I created a little flag to balance my image a bit.  I also made a little ruffle at the bottom with pink ribbon. It is a bit tricky, but I love the result!

Have a great day my friends! Bundle up and stay warm! : )

What a beautiful card, thanks for sharing. Hope your January is not too bleak, say I from Australia in the middle of summer.

This card is darling! I will say it again, you know the best tricks. I love how your frame looks with liquid applique and glitter. Such a fun shabby chic feel to this card. I adore it. February is worse for me than January. Usually, I'm tired of the snow by then and I've had it. Come on May!
