Merry Monday Country Landscape

My goodness but the weekend flew by!

Now it's Merry Monday time again.


Karen chose this challenge for us.


I  had to think long and hard to decide what to do 
and I still wasn't sure what I was going to do when I started.

I'm really pleased with the results though.

And it was fun to be challenged.

I used some white craft ink refill and an old toothbrush for the snow in the sky.

I die cut the village and sponged the tree trunks and houses with an eye shadow applicator then covered the roofs and trees with 
Martha Steward Sparkle Texture Effects.

The bottom snowbank was cut freehand and the square frame cut on my paper cutter.

I outlined the frame and snowbanks with Dazzling Details.

Now it's your turn.

You'll find wonderful inspiration, at Merry Monday
Do go to see the fantastic cards that the Design Team have come up with.

I'm so glad you stopped by.

Enjoy!

I often wondered how I could make snow falling and now I know. I am not much of a snow fan after this past winter but this card I like anyway. Thanks for a new tool next time I make an image like this.

Great job on the card! My brain can't remember the colors from one second to the next, let alone come up with something. I'm loving this though!

I am so loving this card Bonnie! I love the white and the kraft colors together, makes that snow scene even more striking! I also love the little village scene and love how you did the snow in the sky. It looks like you even have a shooting star in your snow storm. lol Love, love this card and always have love that sentiment. Hugs
