Winter Collage

Last year a sweet friend sent me some stamps that she was no longer using.  Among them was this lovely Winter Collage stamp by Memory Box, from 2012.  With the impending cold snap on the way and lots of snow and ice coming, I thought this might be a good time to share a card using it, to reflect the beauty of the season.

Winter Collage

I simply stamped it and colored in the tiny elements, then framed it in green and placed it on a kraft card.  Sometimes simple is best.

Thanks for visiting today - keep cozy!!
