Hi, well it finally happened, it got cold in Buffalo!  We are experiencing deep freeze temperatures, but it is January and we have held out until now, so I don't think we can complain, or we can but it won't do any good!!  And, since Rick retired last Friday, we didn't have to go out...., so we didn't. 

Today's card is for the challenge at Prairie Fairy #69 and the theme for the challenge is Sparkly Wings.

My card Recipe:
Digi - Prairie Fairy
Papers - Card base, purple pearlescent, DCWV Winter Magic Stack
Punched border - Martha
Snowflake - Cuttlebug die and matching embossing folder set
rhinestone stars in snowflakes- Michael's
Ribbon from my stash
White and blue American Art Institute Glitter

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:

Pile it on Challenge #1 - Anything Goes
Anything Goes Challenge #57 - Blue and one other color
Gingerloft #30 - Winter/Christmas
Stampin for the Weekend #23-Let it snow
Top Tip Tuesday #67 - Anything Goes
My Tip, don't be afraid to experiment with different color combinations,
I think most of us tend to use "safe" color combos, but neglect some of the
more adventurous ones!
Digital Tuesday Challenge #141 - Winter Wonderland

Thanks for stopping by.  Until later.........
