Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Did the groundhog in your area predict more winter or early spring? I'm kind of still waiting for any's been a little absent around here. Anyway, today I have a winter card using this fun, fun, fun Winter Wonder Words bg. When my unmounted stamp arrived, it still had a line across the top (from the edge of the plate) & I left it. I don't always ink it, but I did this time. I thought it made the perfect division between the upper & lower part. I inked it w/ the stormy sky ink & stamped it multiple times, but only used the line across the top.  The Warm Wishes was stamped in the upper area w/ the majestic blue ink to make it a little more prominent than the lower bg. 
I came across a piece of royal blue c/s that I had embossed all over w/ a sparkly powder. I don't know why I did this or when, but I thought it might look good for a big frosty snowman. After I die cut him, I left the die in place & went over some parts w/ a white marker & the others w/ a cobalt blue Copic. Then I added a die cut piece of thin foam behind him to elevate him a bit. The larger blue mittens were punched & added. A narrow strip of blue glitter paper was added down the left & some punched snowflakes here & there.

Here's a look a the inside. I went over the greeting & mittens w/ a blue Wink of Stella.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
