First Day of Winter...

Happy Birthday Amelia Lee!  
Having a birthday on the First Day of Winter is kinda cool!  

I made this DT card for the new Sunday challenge at 613 Ave C... in honor of the First Day of Winter, you are asked to use Snowflakes.  Easy enough - a Cuttlebug E-Folder embossed the first snowflake layer, the 2nd layer applied has three McGill punched snowflakes, and then a paper with silver glitter applied attached behind the punched shape. The third panel has four copies of the RSD image used for Paper Sculpting [or Paper Tole].  You can see some of the layers in this close up:
The final addition was the Tim Holtz die cut bow.
Go see the rest of the uber fun creations from our DT at 613 Ave C and enter up to three submissions for a chance at the RSD prize!
