Winter Has a Beauty All It's Own

 Many of us complain about winter, and the ice, and the snow.  But it does indeed have a certain beauty that no other season has -- despite its drawbacks.  If I never had to go out in winter I would enjoy watching the snow and all -- if I could stay warm.  Thus, I go to Florida in January where I can be warm.  But I have a ton of family and friends who LOVE winter, love snow, love being out in the cold weather.

I tried to capture that winter beauty in my card.   I chose to use black card stock and detail silver embossing powder.  I used Technique Junkie Retro Sparkles - and the new Technique Junkie January Release Beauty of Winter -  Both were stamped on black card stock and heat embossed with detail silver embossing powder.

I used Star Dream silver text weight paper for layering.  The sentiment in punch out, and the silver punched out twice to layer behind the black piece,  A silver ribbon and bow is added.

Have a great day no matter how cold or warm your winter is!  And get inky!

Judy, this is stunning! I don't mind winter, I find, as you say, it has it's own beauty.
