A Winter Card for SOS.....

Shopping Our Stash Weekly Challenge Blog

Hello everyone: Hope your New Year's celebrations were awesome, in the company of family and friends.
This is the first challenge of 2019 for SHOPPING OUR STASHso we hope you come and play along with us. The theme is "Winter Blues", meaning make a Winter card using the color BLUE. 
This is my card and I hope it inspires you to join us in the gallery.

The image is from an old Flourishes set called "Warm Winter Wishes", stamped on watercolor paper with Stazon black ink and colored with SU markers and Prismacolor pencils.
I added a bit of Dazzling Details to the Snowman and the snow.


The Sentiment, the snowflakes and the mittens are from the same set.

I hope you find some time to play in your craft room now that the Holiday celebrations are over, I know from my own experience, how busy we are during this festive time.

Please visit our SHOPPING OUR STASH blog to see what my teammates created for your inspiration and come join us.
