buried under ALOT of snow...

Actually we're dug out now, but WOW we got alot of snow this past week. I am so tired from shoveling snow!!!! I had finally just dug out my parking spot from the previous storm when Wednesday's blizzard hit. We lost power yesterday for a few hours and were all completely lost without power. No TV's. No video games. No internet. No laundry. oh wait, that was a perk, LOL!

So when I sat down to make a card for Embellish Magazine's color challenge (pink, brown and turq. ) I had snow on my mind. That ribbon is actually a darker turquoise color. I'm not sure why it looks so washed out in the photo. The snow was created with liquid applique that I puffed with the heat gun (after the power returned, LOL!)

supplies used: Stampendous (birch trees, sentiment, birds), Hero Arts (polka dots)

Instead of it opening like a normal card, the tree section is actually a card and the polka dot background is just a base. That sounds confusing. Here's a photo to clear that up...

And I have one more thing to share tonight, join me next Tuesday for a HOP(E) for HAITI with Skipping Stones Design!
