A Winter's Day . . .

Happy Saturday Everyone!

Today I have a new inspiration card for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog.  
With all the HOT weather we've been having, I'm 'cooling it off' a bit with a snowy scene!
I hope you like it!

The dies I have used on today's creation are:

This is NOT what I originally had in mind for my design today!  But, when I die cut the MB Snowflake Oval Frame, TWO pieces of my 5x8 white card stock  were stuck together so I ended up cutting out TWO frames and a few of the intricate snowflakes torn off the one frame before I realized what was going on ... DUH!

With that being said, I knew I would be wasting the panel with a few little missing snowflakes and decided to layer one panel on top of the other for added dimension and less waste!  (I'm getting so fickle in my old age, lol.)   The birds were die cut twice ... once in white and once in red card stock.  The branch on the white panel was colored using my Spectrum Noir alcohol marker (TN7) and the red birds were fussy cut & glued onto the white panel.

I cut off the bottom portion of the die cut and just used the snowflake portion.
A few small pieces of 3M dimensional tape and we're ready to go.

Once my focus panel was created, the 'scene' just started coming together.  
Once completed, touches of Diamond Stickles was added for sparkle.

Please don't forget to come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.
