Paper Sweeties Inspiration #27 January 2015- Winter Wishes

Happy New Year!
I'm wishing you all a happy healthy New Year!  May this new year bring you lots of wonderful blessings! 
Paper Sweeties is off to a new year with a fun challenge! And, here is my card...
I was a little baffled on how I would make my card following the color choices, but I came up with a glittery silver as one of the main colors to give the appearance of ice and snow.  And, I got out sweet Sophie with coordinating die and bundled her up in her outfit using Let It Snow stamp set.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  The alphas are from the stamp set Alphas-Upper Case.  And, the cute snowman and red bow is from the stamp set Holly Days with coordinating dies. 

Have fun creating a card or project this month for the challenge for one lucky winner will be awarded a $20 gift certificate.  And, an invite to be guest designer for the following month!

You'll want to hop along with my fellow teammates to see what creations they came up with...
