SSC143 Winter Frost

This week at Sunday Stamps we have a color challenge for you, full of cool winter colors. I'm not even going to lie, this one was hard for me because I absolutely despise the color purple (and pink) so I don't have much purple in my stash at all. I kept going back to the graphic over the course of several days trying to jump start my brain and get my mojo working. 

The photo in the graphic reminds me of winter in Alaska. We spent a good portion of Nov and Dec in negative temps and ended up with a lot of hoarfrost on the trees. Our skies also turn a very pretty pink/purple during sunsets and we get alpenglow on the mountains that surround the valley I live in. This is the inspiration I drew from for my card.

My card base is Perfect Plum and I used some patterned paper from MFT for the background. I then used the Log Cabin Mountainscape Die from SugarPea Designs as my main focal point. I've got a little house in the woods surrounded by trees and mountains so that's what I was thinking of when using this die. I used Wisteria Wonder for the mountain tops, to mimic the color one might see as the alpenglow fades and shadows fall. I used an embossing folder from SU for the snow across the ground.

Head on over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT created and then play along with us!
