A Winter Wonderland

Hello, everyone!  I've been crafting again!  I re-injured my bad shoulder, and doing anything physical is causing a lot of pain.  Bad for our house move, good for crafting! Today I'm sharing a Christmas card.  I love this image - it's called A Winter Wonderland from Sparkle N Sprinkle.

I enlarged this so you can see all the loose glitter I added to the image. I had a lot of fun colouring this winter scene with my Prismacolor pencils.  Than I went a little crazy adding embellies and die cuts. Here are all the other supplies used:
  • Digital sentiment:   Imagine That... digis by Kris "Jenn and Friends" set 
  • Glitter:  Stampendous Crystal Snow - White
  • Die cuts:  Fawn (Marianne Design), bunny (Cheery Lynn), snowflakes (Impression Obsession)
  • Patterned paper:  Lawn Fawn
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Embossing folder:  Cuttlebug Snowflakes (used on mirror die cut)
  • Ribbon:  Offray
  • Bow maker:  Craft-Dee BowZ
  • Accents:  Mirror die cut (Recollections), glitter tree, pearls (Dollarama), charm (stash)
