  This card was created using  a Heartfelt Creations winter scene cling mount set of rubber stamps. I stamped the scene on bristol board. I colorized the image using Prisma Color pencil and Gamsol. The clouds were created using paper towel and dye inks by Ranger. The window effect was created using a Cheery Lynn die. I added the window curtain topper with a lattice punch from EK Success and green glittery lace. The christmas wreath hanging from the window is a tiny ornament from HL. I added diamond dust to create a snow effect at the bottom right hand corner of the window. A spellbinder die was used for the sentiment. The background paper is from DCWV. This card was fun to create and the window die has so many other possibilities.
