QKR Stampede Challenge

Hello Everyone!
Yep, another week has come to an end and that means it's time for me to put my QKR Stampede Guest Designer Hat on and share with you the card I made with another one of their cute images!

Today's challenge is COLD & FROSTY
 and I chose their "Snowy Barn (digi#13810)" for my creation.

This is such a cute image and reminds me of my growing up years when we had to go out to the barn and feel the cows/horses in the winter time!  And trudging through the all that snow to just get to the barn!  LOL!  Ahhh the good 'ole days!  (kidding!  that was work!)

I've used scraps of various design paper for the background, Martha Stewart icicle border punch, Prismacolor markers for coloring the image and Chalk-AH-Lot Jules Blue chalk for the sky.  A touch of sparkle on the roof & ground snow was added with a 2-way glue stick & Deco Art Glamour Dust.

Here's a close up ...

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges:
Cards Galore - Anything Goes
CDAC Seasonal Fun - What happens Jan - March (Easy Membership Required)
Crafty Sentiments - Winter Fun

Thanks so much for stopping in today and I hope you'll pop over to QKR Stampede and check out what the design team has created to inspire you with today!
