Warmest Winter Wishes

Hello Friends! It was really cold yesterday with a snowfall of about 7 inches here along the front range of the Rockies. Today the temps were back in the 60s and most of the snow is gone. That’s good news as DH and I are traveling to Omaha, Nebraska this weekend for my cousin’s wedding. He and his bride are getting married on Halloween…LOL A bit extraordinary but knowing my cousin that fits his personality. All of the guests must attend in Halloween costume and since some of my family reads my blog, I can’t say how we will dress.  

Now on to the best part of my post!!! LOL I made this card with a new Maggie stamp, “Winter Tilda.” She is just adorable and I love coloring these images.
My DPs are from SEI’s new Christmas collection “Silver Valley.” These are beautiful papers! Which reminds me, for a chance to win a full 12x12 paper pack of Silver Valley (and other goodies) check my sidebar for my Blog-iversary candy.

I also used one of my favorite papers from “The Paper Company” frosted Silver cardstock. I always use these for my Christmas Cards and they come in lots of colors. I think they are so festive for the season. I dry embossed some snowflakes for Tilda’s background with a brass stencil for random dots of snow. The gorgeous lace, silver metal corners and flowers are from WOC.
I colored Tilda with Copics and added Polar White Flowersoft to the hat pompoms and used the Silver cardstock for the main part of her hat and hand muffs. Her boots got a coat of Glossy accents and the buttons on her coat got Silver Stickles.
I repeated some elements of the card front on the inside with a sentiment from Hero Arts stamps.
These are the Copics I used to color Tilda.

I’m entering this card in the following Challenges:

Paper Sundaes – 2 of (Black, Sparkle, Flowers & Distressing)
TOMIC – Bingo (Metal, Lace & Doo Hickeys)
Crafts & Me – Winter Blues
Simon Says Stamp – Anything Goes

The irony of this is that I am visiting my very dear friend in Omaha right now and looking at your GORGEOUS card while you're in the same town. :) That wedding sounds like a blast!
