lawnscaping challenge #97 - winter theme

alright - out with the old, in with the new, as they say!
and today, we have a NEW Lawnscaping Challenge to share! this time, the challenge is to create a winter themed project based on these images found on Pinterest! 

and i LOOOOOOOOOVED these images! seriously - swoon! i was SO inspired!
i loved the whites, very light blues, super soft browns and that POP of red with the bird!

i really like how this card came out! 
first, i added some watercoloring to a white piece of cardstock, and then die cut the Stitched Snowflake Lawn Cuts! it gave me a variety of warm greys, light blues and whites on each snowflake! then i dip died each snowflake with some versamark and added some Silver Pearl embossing paste! people - this adds a layer of shine, but you CAN STILL SEE the colors, underneath. i LOVE it! :)

i used my sewing machine to stitch on the snowflakes in a burst from the top right of the card. then i colored the bird, log and trees with come copics and popped them up for dimension! the bird and log are from Joy to the Woods (LOVE that set!), and the sentiment and trees are from Yeti, Set, Go! :)

so that's my cardare you ready to play along?
