A Snowy Old-Fashioned Christmas

This is my second post today.  It's just a short
scroll down for Dynamic Duos!

Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps has had a wonderful week of new release festivities with a Christmas theme!  I had so much fun with the new set Old-Fashioned Christmas that I had a card for the blog hop and the VSD at splitcoaststampers and I STILL have one more card to show you today!

Snowy Sleighride

I stamped the image and then restamped it for the trees in the background.  Then I used a white mist and a sparkly mist to make it snowy!!  Not everybody loves snow but this sleigh ride would be my dream come true (as long as I had a warm blanket, fuzzy gloves and a VERY hot chocolate!)

I used this week's Merry Monday sketch although I did move the big embellishment to the opposite side so that the poor horse wasn't trotting into a giant snowflake!!

I would LOVE to take a ride on a sleigh on a snowy day. I live in Florida and it is still so very hot. The blue trees in the snow look so realistic. Thanks

Would love to know exactly what kind of "white mist" you used to make it look snowy. Your card is gorgeous!!! And it's so nice to see a properly tied bow. It makes such a difference.
