Flourishes Warm Winter Wishes challenge

I've been mia here lately because we've been having our floors refinished this week, which meant I was barred from getting back to my craft room.  I passed the time by coloring some stamped images.   This morning I saw this card on Donna's blog and I fell in love with it. I had a few of these nestabilities pendant dies already cut, and my mind instantly went to this Penny Black snowman which I colored yesterday.  Then I saw the current Flourishes challenge "As the weather outside starts to turn to winter, let’s turn to the beautiful shades of cool blue – from deep and vibrant to soft and serene. We want to see these shades on your cards to enter our Warm Winter Wishes Challenge!"  And I was off and running.  So here is my entry:


Our floors are finished and look brand new (they are the original wood floors from 1963), but now we need to paint that room, so I'll be doing that most of this weekend.  Always something, huh?  Hope your weekend is lots more fun than ours will be! 

Suppies: blue and white cardstock, blue mottled dp, unknown, Penny Black snowman from 30-058 Jolly Friends, Hero Arts CL355 Lots of Merry, (also various snowflakes from several other clear sets), versafine onyx black and Adirondack stonewash inks, Prismacolor pencils, glue pen and glitter, cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder, blue dotted grosgrain ribbon, punched snowflakes
