Winter Wonderland card

Hi all! It's offically spring and there's still snow on the ground , so of course I'm thinking winter!!! LOL Not really, but I wanted to play along with Stef and Lauren over at Jingle Belles for their Neutral Noel challenge. I haven't made a Christmas card in weeks and I know how fast the holiday season can sneak up so I really gotta get back to making a few each week. This challenge was a great place to start. Here's my card:


 
 
I used the sketch from this week's Mojo Monday for the layout of my card...
 
 
 
Hmmm, just noticed that I didn't add a trim beneath my border- maybe I 'll do that later!
 
 
Keeping my card neutral was challenging -- but after searching through my Xmas papers I found this oldie striped from a Michaels paper pack from a couple of years ago. It has all those neu match thetral colors plus a bit of glimmer on the stripes! Yay, I love glimmer!!! I cut out a snowflake to match the CTMH's Season's and Nature set. To make the front sentiment stand out , I heat embossed it wth SU!(retired) dark brown ep. 
 
Thanks for stopping by today.... have a great rest of your day!!
