Craftin Desert Divas Challenge: Winter

Happy Monday!

It is a new challenge over at Craftin Desert Divas: Winter.

For my DT card I wanted to capture the beauty of winter.  Not just the snow flakes and the snow but the lovely trees that you notice in the winter.  It seems that deciduous trees grab all of the tree attention in spring, summer and fall.  In the winter, the deciduous trees are at rest and the lovely evergreens are again in view.  
Hero Arts' stamp Winter tree is the focal point of the winter card.  Mini snowflakes are gracefully falling around the tree.

The inside is a continuation of the outside with simply stated "Winter Wishes".
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Looking forward to seeing your winter cards at Craftin Desert Divas!
