PP425 Snowy Day

Happy Sunday, peeps! Hope you're staying safe and warm this weekend!  It's time for another Paper Players challenge, and it is a CLEAN AND SIMPLE one!  Be sure to check out the guidelines at the Paper Players' blog!  Claire is our hostess this week and here is her prompt:

I chose to go more with the "snow" than the woods, using a Darice embossing folder and a cute little redbird from Flora and Fauna:

I am also using the color palette from CAS Colours and Sketches:

I stamped the bird in Memento black, coloring it with some Blends, then diecut it and matted it with a Balmy Blue scallop:

I added a Crumb Cake branch and colored it with some Wink of Stella, then a little "joy" from another Flora and Fauna set.  I mounted it all on the embossed panel and then on a Crumb Cake card.  Sweet, clean and simple!  I hope you play along with us!  Check out what the other designers created:

And speaking of snow, a little snowy fun with the wee little bit we got last week.  It wasn't much, but it was very cold and very slippery!!

The sun is getting lower and the shadows longer:

And we even got Grampy to go down a few times!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

LeAnne, I love the embossed background and the kraft base layer really does frame it beautifully. That little bird is gorgeous, especially with his scalloped border. Another fabulous card.

Love everything about his Leanne! The colors, the texture and that sweet cardinal. Such a perfect tribute to the winter season. Hooray for snow angels!
