Digital Tuesday Challenge 'Winter Scenes'

Hello and welcome to another Digital Tuesday Challenge! Did everyone have a wonderful Christmas? I hope so. I spent Christmas Day repainting my living room. I just bought new furniture and Christmas Day was the only day I had off all week to paint before the furniture arrived, so that's what I did! We opened presents the night before when I got home from work, and we had a still had a nice Christmas Day Dinner.

Anyhow, onto today's challenge 'Winter Scenes'. The challenge this week is to to make a card or project using a digital winter scene image and Dazzling Diamonds for snow. Our sponsor this week is 'Soft Pencil' and they are giving away a $15.00 gift certificate to one lucky randomly chosen winner!

Now, onto my card for the challenge. I used the image "Its Snowing" from 'Soft Pencil'. My paper is 'Peppermint Forest' from JoAnn's Fabrics and Crafts. I love this Designer Paper. I don't know if they have any left at the JoAnn's near you, or on-line, it went pretty fast in my local store, but it is FABULOUS! Its a mix of glittery and regular papers that all go so well together, and I love the color scheme. I also used card stock colors White, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive and Real Red. I mounted both the main image panel, sentiment, and the roof, dog, and little girl up on dimensionals. I put Dazzling Diamonds on the snow on the ground and in the air. The three large snowflakes are a Martha Stewart punch. Here is a close up so you can see the dimension and the Dazzling Diamonds.

  13. I like the little girl and puppy in front of your house. The sparkle is a nice accent to your wintery scene.

    How terrific that you repainted your living room for your new furniture. It's nice to have a new room for the new year. I think I have you beat for odd home improvement projects on holidays though. Thanksgiving several years ago we opted out of a big dinner and rented a machine to do some blown in insulation in our attic. What a mess but the house is toastier.

    Thanks so much for the adorable Christmas card. Love the snowman image and round border.
