7 Kids College Fund Picture Challenge

Happy Wednesday!

Today at 7 Kids College Fund Challenge , we have a picture challenge for you. 
Use this picture as your inspiration and let your imagination run wild!


I saw cold, ice, and metal. Here is my card...


You can find the following items at 7 Kids College Fund...

Accessories:  Stickles, Pearls



I used Magnolia Winter Tree turned on its side to create the small forest of trees in the woods.I added snow effects and Stickles to the ground and the trees to emphasize the 3-D effects of the snow.


The sprays are more floral finds. I added a bow and made an acrylic embellishment to top off the bow. I used metallic paper for the background paper to bring out the chilly metal feel of my inspirational picture.

I am entering this card in the following challenges...

Magnolia-licisou Picture Challenge - I was able to draw additional inspiration from this picture.

Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Christmas Tilda
Just Magnolia - Anything Goes with optional Pearls and Lace
