Simple Winter Memories

The challenge over at Jingle Belles this week is a great one....don't use any DSP. That's right, keep the specialty papers off your card and just get creative with plain cardstock! For my card I used the SU embossing folder Snow Burst to create texture and dimension against the simple image of a sled leaning against a house. After I took the picture I added some Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details to the wreath.

I'm also linking this up at Merry Monday, as they have an anything goes challenge for the month of July, so you can link up any Christmas card you make.

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Winter Memories, More Merry Messages(inside of card, which I forgot to take a picture of!)
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla
Ink: Black StazOn, Garden Green, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Riding Hood Red(retired)
Accessories: Big Shot, SU Snow Burst EF(retired), Nestabilities Ovals, SU Alpine Ribbon, non-SU brads
