The layout for this card was inspired by Claudia Rosa. It's been so long since I've seen the card on her blog, I don't know which post it was exactly... Papers are from Frosty Blanket by Heartfelt Creations. The image stamp and sentiment are from Holiday Haven. Unfortunately, these items are all retired... Looks I need to do some shopping and update my stash! The snowflake border punch is by Fiskars.

I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and tried to keep it simple. After cutting it with Spellbinders dies, I inked the edges with blue distress ink. The sentiment was cut from a Fiskars punch. I used Vintage Photo distress ink on the edges and topped with Diamond Stickles.

Thanks for stopping by!
