Sisterhood of Crafters - Newly Acquired Stash

Hello dear friends!
It's time once again for a new challenge over
 Today's theme was chosen by Katy and she'd like to see

Anyone who knows me knows I'm a bit of a 'die' freak so I have lots of
new dies to play with for this theme.  Here's what I've created for you today . . .

Inside view

 The new dies I've used are:

Paper Roses 'Reindeer 1' (16584)
Sue Wilson Designs - Mini Expressions - Happy
I took the liberty of snipping off the 'belated' portion of this sentiment die to use on the inside atop a Tutti Designs 'Scalloped Stitched Circle' cut from black card stock.

 The background was created using various shades of blue Tim Holtz distress oxide inks then added 'snow' using a white gelly roll pen.  My snow mounds are simply strips of scrap white card stock torn from end to end randomly.

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun at The Sisterhood of Crafters!
My 'sistahs' have created some fabulous creations to help inspire you ... 
be sure to pop over and check them out!

 See you there!

As always, thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to stop by!
