Photo Inspiration

It's time for a new challenge at Winter Wonderland and we have an inspiration photo for you this week.  I have used a Digi Stamp Boutique image for my card and I was inspired by the snowman and the warm rustic colours.

I have used papers from Bearly Mine Designs and coloured my image with ProMarkers.  I cut some red snowflakes with a Spellbinders die and added some snowflake embellishments from my stash.
