Winter Cards

We woke up to the first day of 2008 and found a winter wonderland. What a beautiful sight it was outside. Felt very inspired by it to create these winter cards.
Just love this little skater from Magenta. I attached her to some speciality paper I had which looks just like snowflakes and then also attached that to some silver embossed snowflakes (Art Impressions). The sentiment is from Studio G clear stamps. This card was made from a woods scene stamp from Northwoods. After coloring it I decided it would have more "punch" if I punched it into three pieces for this card. I colored it using watercolor pencils and a silver glitter gel pen for some sparkle.

Ooh, I love the wintery, punched scene, and the velvet ribobn is a perfect touch!

I had visited this morning but forgot to leave a comment!! I really love your second card - the three winter portraits look really nice like that!
