Winter Card

I'm not much into winter, but I wanted to enter the Magnolia-licious Inspirational Challenge. I also used a sketch from Mojo Monday to design my card and Reasonable Ribbon's Monochromatic Challenge. Here is what I came up with.

 
 
 
 
 
I used the Winter Wonderland cricut cartridge to cut the snowflake. I did 2 layers at 2" and 1 1/2 ".  The Magnolia image is mini Autumn Tilda with Broom. I used the Paper Blossoms Pine Branch punch and Tim Holtz ribbon. The ribbon is normally white but I inked it with Distress Worn Lipstick to go with the pink color scheme. For the background paper I used a light pink paper from my stash and stamped it with 2 sizes of Stampendous snowflake stamps. I stamped with Versamark and embossed them with clear glitter embossing powder. The paper with the trees on it is watercolor paper that I colored with gelatos. I wet the gelatos and swirled the colors together to make the background. I took my stardust clear pen to draw snowflakes. You can't really see it very well in the pictures, but I also took a snow writer and put some white on the trees and ground for snow. I thought that the swirl paper kind of resembled wind.
 
Here are the challenges I am entering:

Hi Annette,
What a lovely scene you have created :o)
I agree that the swirls on the paper resemble wind.
With that and your snowflake paper you set the scene. Very much like your background and I can see the snowflakes you made with your pen. Tilda looks lovely sitting there. The TH distress ink on your ribbon matches your card perfectly! I really like the snowflakes you cut out with your Cricut. That paper is wonderful and shiny.
Hugs, Candy
