A Winter Card.....

...... that is not blue and white!  I don't think I've ever stamped black snowflakes before, but I wanted to create this winter/new year card in something other than blue and white.  I ended up with cream/brown tones and black.   That button was a last minute add-on.  Just found it in my button box and thought it was perfect.  Just like you'd expect a black snowflake to look!




Snowflake border stamp is by Hero Arts.  Sledding stamp is by Sugar Lump Studios.

This is wonderful, Louise! The black ink on the heavy cream paper looks like a discovered antique piece (love that stamp) and the rest of the composition sets it off perfectly. Cheers! Looking forward to more of your great art in 2010 - Happy New Year!
