Card Recipe:
Image - Winter Window a freebie from Digi Doodle Shop (I don't see it there now though :()
Paper - DCWV The Christmas Combo
Medium - Copic Markers
Border Punch - Fiskars Apron Lace
Embossing Folder - Sizzix
Sentiment - The Paper Studio
Paint - Puffy by Tulip
Glitter - Glamour Dust by Viva Decor

I love this image and it was really nice to color those rich curtains.
I added Puffy Paint to the snow in the image including making some "snow" falling. Before I heated the paint to make it puff I added Glamour Dust glitter on top.
I love how this card came out and I hope it encourages you to come along and play with us at Cooking It Up With Katie!
