DYSU Challenge #53

Hey everyone! Welcome to a new challenge at Do You Stack Up?! This week we want to LET IT SNOW!!  So grab a cup of your favorite hot drink and join us in the fun of creating some snowy fun project.

Meljen's Designs
Winner Choice of 4 Images

Robyn's Fetish
Winner's Choice of either 5 digital stamps or
4 digital stamps and 1 paper pack

The Crafter's Companion
The Boxer and Envelobox Creator Bundle with Advanced Techniques DVD

I used the Robyn's Fetish image "In the Cold", and since one of my New Year's resolutions is to start trying to incorporate my DT and challenge cards with donating more cards to charity, this image brought to mind a very thoughtful sentiment, no matter what your daily challenges may be.

I wanted to make it just as appealing to a young person
as to an adult.
I pulled out my Cuttlebug embossing folders, my die cuts, my Stickles, and my Copics and decided that my scrap room could be cleaned and re-organized another!

The inside sentiment completes the quote.

I love to take a digital image and crop around a focal point for the inside of my card.
Sometimes, it brings out the little details of that image that you wouldn't normally notice.
