Icy, Snowy Winter

Had to get up, get my card made, and get off to the lab this morning. That is no fun but one of those necessities of life. It really didn't take long so I'm back to crafting.

Today is the Queen for the Day challenge #86 on Splitcoaststampers. I did a case of a fabulous stamper, Karen B Barber. This is her card. She always makes fabulous bows. I didn't try to compete. LOL

I'm using a Gingerloft Digi Stamps image called Winter Trees. I won this digi a while back and have been really wanting to use it. I think it is just beautiful. I made it a Christmas card and stamped a sentiment at the bottom. Use a lot of Star Dust Stickles. Colored the tree green with Copics.
