Winter Blues

I am behind on my thank you notes for Xmas prezzies so this is one of several I am sending out.  I intentionally left off the sentiment as the image was just too pretty to cover up with anything beyond the bow.

I went to a small stamp show here in the Dallas area yesterday.  Even though it's small, I still always find something new at the show and this year was no exception.  For this card, I used two new additions from the show - the background was done using three different Spectrum Noir markers and the stamp is from Lost Coast Designs (it make just become my new favorite!)  I then added some clear embossing powder on some of the branches and sprayed the whole thing with Perfect Pearls Mist to give it a beautiful snowy, wintery, shimmer..
