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!
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 Recollections punch. I finished it off with Diamond Stickles.
