Sept. 23 QKR Stampede challenge - embossing with glitter and sparkle

When I saw the theme for this week's challenge (embossing) at QKR Stampede, I thought about this snowflake folder for a wintry card.  QKR has this great digital image, "Snowy Cabin",  as well as the let it snow sentiment.  Since we are in AZ, I could use it to rub it in to some one in snow country.
I did not color the image, but used a lot of glitter on the trees and the snow - on the image and on the embossed snowflakes.
Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder;  glitter, metallic silver strip, Floral Garden Diamond ribbon wrap; glittery snowflake button..  The mats look black here but IRL they are dark blue.  I especially like the crisp look of the white and blue.

That sure is a cute cabin scene! We don't get snow here, either. Maybe a little bit every few years. Snowy scenes are so beautiful, though. I love to create them on cards, or visit occasionally, but it probably wouldn't be so fun to live in year after year. Love the embossed background and silver accents you used. Thanks so much for sharing with us in our Trees challenge at Double D!
