Frosted Silver Bird Nest

 
Winter to me is nature, the greenery with the dollop or a faint sprinkling of snow. 
Snow makes everything bright and new.
The sparkle of magic in the air. 
New Possibilities.
Wonder.
 
 
In fact it snowed this evening at about 8:15 -8:45.  An inch or so of fine powder.  Not good for snowballs, but alot of fun to walk around the block with a very happy 10 year old boy!  Luckily we are both cold blooded.  Love the snow.
 
 
I made a card the other day, the Peacock Card where I used copics over embossing and I wanted to do it again.  A light dabble of green and brown.

Gorgeous - love the look of the embossing - it adds texture and shine, just like real snow. I also really like that sentiment. Thanks for playing along with us at CASology this week!
