Sending Warm Wishes...'Cause It's Snowing!

Yesterday was cold, rainy, and dreary--it couldn't get much worse, right? Wrong! I woke up to SNOW this morning! C'mon, God, it's almost April--seriously?!

So...I decided to make a springy card to cheer myself up. I used today's sketch at 365 Cards, but then I couldn't get a good picture because of the crummy light outside. Maybe I should just go back to bed??? ;)

Stamps: Trees, Birds, and Messages (Hero Arts)
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss textured, Chocolate Chip, PTI white
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Nestabilities circles, flower punch (unknown), Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, rhinestones (The Paper Studio), Chit Chat rub-ons (SU)

Oh my gosh! Snow! I hope it doesn't come our way.

This is so cool how you cut your image in a circle then offset the circle mats. I also like your bling.
