Winter Wonderland

Hello Everyone,

For today I am writing on behalf of Brown Sugar Challenge Blog. This weeks theme is:
NO patterned paper

This is a challenge that I found to be quite difficult. More about that later. Here is my card for tonight. Enjoy!

White snowy texture surrounding this colorful scene.
Theme for this week is 'no patterned paper'
Our sponsor this week is the talented Morgans Art! These images are just amazingly detailed.. I had the idea later but some of the detailed scenes could be perfect for using the spotlighting technique. She also has other amazing images that you should check out her store. It will surely amaze! 
Their prize this week are
3 digi stamps from Morgans Art.

A close up of the winter girl possibility making a wish.
The coat color coordinates nicely with the background sunset.
I decided to surround this Winter Wonderland all in white
to depict the whiteness of snow. This allows the image to pop.

I decided this design didn't need anymore surrounding color but it did need
some texture.
If you follow me regularly, you might have noticed that I have used this image once before. Originally, I designed the other card for the BSCB inspiration card. When I was preparing the last finishing touches on the card I realized that I didn't know what the theme was for this week; then realizing you couldn't use patterned paper... Oops! So back to the drawing board I went and came out with this card.
In the end, I had a great time creating both and I feel both turned out so well.

Well that should do it for me.. I want to thank you so much for spending some of your day with me.. I really do appreciate it and do hope you can join us at Brown Sugar. I am looking forward to see your designs!! Take care all and see you soon.

All the best,
