Snowy greetings...

this December day!  It is foggy where I live, but I can feel that snow in the air.  The City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 34 is 'Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow'.  I've been 'saving' this Memory Box paper from their Dewdrop collection and it 'feels' right to use it now.  The 'snowflakes' are delicate peonies drifting down and the branch has a few leaves with tips of fragile chartreuse reminding me that winter will not last forever.  I used a country scene stamped in Brilliance Moonlight white onto Stampin Up Basic Grey.  The sentiment was inked again with Versafine Onyx Black onto Whisper White.  I had cut mats around both.  The tiniest bit of white/silver netting is tied to the branch of the tree...you can see the shadow from the camera angle.

This card also qualifies for the Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge #300 which was to pick from one of the other 299 challenges.  I selected CC159 (Soft Sky, Basic Grey, Whisper White).

Hope your weather is just the way you like it....flurries, fog, liquid sunshine, or gentle island breezes...

Be Blessed this day and always

So very artsy, Susan! I love the pretty color combo you chose for the SCS challenge. Our weather is cold and windy, but sunny--so I can't complain. As much as I would LOVE to see some snow (it's so cozy to be inside while it snows outside), our first (major) snowfall will complicate getting my kids to and from school as the hills we usually walk will become icy and dangerous. Please hold off, snow, for just a little bit longer!!

Your card is gorgeous! Pale blue and white are ust perfect for a "snow"card. I love the contrast between your sentiment and the stamped tag behind it; wow! And yes; it's cold here and i would love some sun....
