Dies R Us - Snowy Christmas

Hi Everyone!
Today I have a creation made for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog!
I'm sharing yet another holiday creation designed using dies from the Dies R Us Store.

I would love to be creating more cards right now using butterflies, birds, flowers ... you know ... summery type things.  But with the holidays just right around the corner, I really need to stay focused and get my holiday cards made and ready for the postman.  We only have 2 1/2 months before it's present opening time and time flies so I'm doing my best at STAYING FOCUSED!!

Poppystamps - Dies - Wintergreen Border (NEW)Impression Obsession - Dies - Small Snowflake SetToday I've used two die sets.  My border across the top of my card is the Poppystamps 'Wintergreen Border' POPPY-1574 and my snowflakes are from the Impression Obsession 'Small Snowflake Set' DIE100.

I found this sweet image in my stash and thought it would work perfectly with my 'snowy' scene.  A touch of sparkle was added across the top as well as in the centers of my snowflakes (though hard to see) and I created background 'snow' with a white gelly roll pen.  
Quick ... Easy ... Beautiful!  

 Please remember, each an every day of the month there's a new inspiration sample shared on the blog by this fabulous design team.  Please be sure to pop in regularly.

Such a pretty snowflake border and I also like the little snowflake die set! Your sweet birds are in the midst of winter but am sure they are singing songs of Spring! Merry Merry!
