White Christmas

Hi again! I'm back with a second card today .....whoohoo! This time, I want to share a Christmas card with you. It turned out WAY better than I thought and I am super pleased with it. I made this card for the current challenge over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. This time, Mynnette had a colour challenge for us.
Mynnette's Colour Challenge #6 inspiration photo:
I loved this picture the moment I saw it. Every time I am outside during the winter months, I look for trees laden with snow to photograph, just like the trees in this picture. As I worked on my card for this challenge, I became more and more excited due to the way it was turning out. I love it when the finished product looks exactly the way I imagined it would.

Here is my card:

View of the front
The tree and church are heat embossed

Close up of the dry embossed snowflakes

A better picture of the heat embossed sentiment

See how the heat embossed tree sparkles?
(It was hard to get the right angle to show the sparkle)

Sentiment on the inside is heat embossed

I am so happy with this card that I plan to make a couple more; all in white of course.
