for this card, I used the new Stud Puffin stamp set! eeeep - just so cute!
I colored all of the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, and then fussy cut them out! I decided to color them in shade of light purple...just for something different! the clouds are from the Plane and Simple set! they're my favorite clouds because there are 3 different sizes to choose from...and you can add smily faces if you want! lol!

then I used Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Inks to add color to the Stitched Mountain Borders die in the background! it's the perfect shade of a light grey! and left the snowy hill white, which was die cut with the Stitched Hillside Borders die set!
I used Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves and Dried Marigold Distress Inks to create the background!

I popped up the sentiment strips and puffins with foam tape!
