Frosty & Friend

Good evening! How is everyone tonight? Do you have snow yet? I don't and since it is the end of November, I'm starting to get a little bit worried. We have had a couple of very light flurries but nothing has stayed yet. It has been WARM too; too warm for this time of year. The Blue Jays are here though and they want their bird seed.
So, tonight the card I am sharing with you is full of snowflakes and awesome blues; my favourite Christmas colours. I made it up for my DT card for this week's challenge at One Stitch at a Time. Challenge #140 is 'Use a Digi' and this time I tried something totally new for me. I used DIGI PAPERS for the first time, and I loved it! These are so great. You can shrink or crop them to print out just the portion you want which is fabulous. It was my turn to pick the digi for Nataliya and I this week and wait till you see the digi papers I picked for us; they are beautiful.
First of all, here is the card I made with them:
