Bring Your Own Sunshine

Happy Monday!
Suddenly winter decided to show up again!  It's ok, I like the fresh blanket of snow to cover up all the yucky old stuff.  Makes it pretty outside again :)

And it's perfect to go along with our new challenge at Digi Makeover, which is to use Snowflakes on your project!!
I've been trying out some different photo locations...that's why my pictures have looked different lately.  For Christmas, my father-in-law made me this amazing craft cabinet (I'll share it with you once I get it filled) and I really want to feature it in my card pictures.  So I've been trying it out a little, and while it has mostly worked, because it's so dark, it leaves my pictures looking pretty dark as not sure how to fix that.  But I tried taking my picture today on top of the cabinet instead, with my ink pad rack behind.  Worked ok for now :)

Anyhow, back to the card!  I used an awesome sentiment from the Raindrops and Rainbows set.  It just says so much and I really wanted it to be front and center.
We took a little day trip down to Burlington, VT on Saturday just to get away, do some shopping and of course visit the Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Factory.  While down there, we stopped in to Michael's and I picked up these super cute sparkly snowflakes that were perfect to add to this card!  It's chilly, but still full of life!

Be sure to check out the rest of the Makeup Artists incredible snowflake creations, and then join in the fun!!!  We'd love to see your creations!
