Winter Blues at The Crafting Cafe

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and managing to stay warm.  As long as we don't see any of the white stuff I shall be happy.  It's okay if you are home in the warm when it snows but not so nice when you have to turn out to work.

Anyway, our challenge for this month over at The Crafting Cafe is 
Winter Blues

Our sponsor for this challenge is the wonderful LEJ Designs who are offering the winner 4 free images of their choice.  

Here is my inspiration project using a super image from our sponsor.

The cute snowman was coloured using promarkers and mounted onto blue cardstock.  I added some liquid pears around the image for added interest.  The blue background paper was in my stash and again, mounted onto blue cardstock.  I added a white panel which was embossed using my snowflakes embossing folder.  The snowflake is a spellbinders die and I glittered it up for added sparkle.  A couple of little trees and some ribbon across the bottom finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and hope you will enter the challenge.  You still have until the end of the month to enter.
