Dashing through the snow

   The first challenge of the year at Crafty Cardmakers has the theme of winter fun.
   I have chosen to use an image from Joanna Sheen's winter collection of House Mouse stamps and after colouring it using Promarkers I matted it onto silver mirri and added glitter to the snow.
   The top triangle of background is core'dinations cardstock which I embossed and then coloured using distress ink. The lower triangle is a piece of designer paper that I had in my stash. I then covered the join with blue ribbon.
   Finally I finished the card with a little stamped mouse which was again coloured using Promarkers and then fussy cut.
