DT CSAYL: Celebrate Snow!

Today it's Friday and that means a brand new challenge over at . The challenge for this week is "celebrate snow" - to use snow, snowflakes, snowmen... anything snow on your card. I struggled a bit with this challenge as we have gotten 4 meters of snow this winter and it was just this week that my lawn acctually melted out from under all the snow... I love snow but by mid-April it should be gone.... ;-)

For this challenge we are sponsored by
 Fred She Said and I got to work with this adorable image called Winter Chickadee so I just had to get my distress inks out... :-D

This is my take on the challenge for your inspiration: 

Here is the card up front. The papers are from a set from Panduro. The snowflakes are punched out using Martha Stewart's snowflake punch.

Here is a close up on Winter Chickadee. I've added some white flower soft as snow on the twigs.

The snowflakes... It shows bad in the picture but I added stickles to them so that they would look frosty.

A picture from the side to show the snow a bit more.

I wish so that you will be able to join us this week! Can't wait to see what you will make of this challenge! 

And do stop by me a bit later as we are holing a blog hop for the DigiBells today - releasing a new image.... Just soooo cute!
