Warm Wishes

Beautiful wintry color combo for Heather's December Color Challenge at Winnie & Walter.  I've been wanting to use Mini Scenery: Into the Woods again, so grabbed several Distress Inks & used a stamp positioner to ink & stamp multiple times. 
When I got the look I wanted, I spritzed the stamp with water & stamped again for a watercolor effect.  I always love shimmer, so I ended by misting with Perfect Pearls--beautiful in real life.  I die cut a Spellbinders oval from navy cardstock & attached the stamped panel behind it.  The sentiment is from Big, Bold, Seasons & I finished off with navy twine & some blue sequins.  This card will be sent to a friend with a winter birthday.  I'm also entering Country View Challenges, CropStopDRU & WAW.  Stay safe & warm if you're in the deep freeze--luckily we're just cool with showers.  Thanks for taking time to stop by.
