Snowy Trees

I really need to come up with a catchy phrase to welcome you and start out my blog posts.  I'm not a wordsmith and that type of thing doesn't come easily to me.  I'll need to work on it in my spare time (cough).  

I'm playing along with the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge again.  Honestly, I've always shied away from tic-tac-toe challenges in the past - I think I was intimidated.  But, I have had so much fun with these.  I chose the top row of Snow, Glitter and Trees. It's a pretty straight forward card.  The trees were stamped, the sky and snow sponged and Wink of Stella added to the tree tips.  I wanted to play up the sparkle a bit more so I added prisma glitter to the snow.  I went with a larger border on this card as I thought it really complimented the main image.






A close up of the Wink of Stella in the trees and the prisma glitter on the snow 
banks (and an abundance of stray glitter, ugh).  The Wink of Stella is amazing IRL, 
but a stinker to capture in a photograph.


Happy Stamping,
Dana
