Snowy Winter House

  Let's get this weekend started off right with some stamping!  I made this one the other day for the Retro Sketches challenge.  I keep seeing all these Christmas countdowns and they make me nervous like I am already behind or something!  So I made a Christmas card to get it out of my system.  Please don't feel pressured or anything!  =)

  I paired up some new items with some retired ones.  It's always satisfying to use something from the stash.  I went to the Color Coach for this one with Wild Wasabi, Pool Party and Chocolate Chip.  I threw in some Island Indigo just cause I'm crazy like that!

  Pretty basic card but here are some details to take a closer look at:

    - The snowy ground was hand cut from a scrap piece of the old style Silver Glimmer paper

    - The house is stamped in Island Indigo and cut out with the Homemade Holiday framelit; notice the string of lights along the roof line, the chimney & window sills colors in with a blender pen and the hand cut wreath popped up on the door
    - Finishing details are the Island Indigo baker's twine bow and the Whisper White candy dots highlighting the sentiment

  Thanks for looking!   Did you stamp today?
