Winter? Feels More Like Spring!

Happy Sunday, all! Although today's card is wintry, the weather outside is anything but. It's 72 right now--that's crazy warm for November in central Illinois!

I haven't played along with any 365 Cards challenges lately...I feel bad, too, since Pam had asked me to join their DT a while ago, and I had to say no. So since I had a little time, I thought I'd do today's sketch. I got to use some of my BasicGrey Eskimo Kisses paper, which I've had for a while, but didn't feel like using until Halloween was over. What do you think?

Paper: PTI white, BasicGrey dp
Accessories: Offray & American Crafts ribbons, Prima rhinestone swirl, SU felt snowflakes, Me & My Big Ideas rhinestones

I love it, Ann!! I ordered some of that yummy dp a few weeks ago...like all my mail from the US, it stops at the border and then I swear they walk it to my house!! LOL Love the snowflakes!! I wanted to play some Christmas music while working in the studio today, but it's sunny here too!! (10 degrees celsius)...not as warm as where you are, but the same feeling :)

Lovely card! And I know what you mean about the weather. I was in Michigan yesterday and it was in the 70's and I called my DH in Indiana and the same for him! What crazy weather!!!

beautiful card! I love the shiny 3D design - I recently saw a similar effect on a wall - a glued design outlining the wall paper pattern, it was gorgeous.
