It's cold out there!

Today I have a nice card that is pretty representative of how many of us in the US are feeling right now!  I chose a baby blue card base and a piece of off-white paper to go over it.  I punched the edge with my Apron Lace punch by Fiskars, then I put on some of my snowflake ribbon.  

I cut the "BRRR" from the font on Wild Card- it's one of my favorites!  The B is at 2 inches and the R's are at 1.5 inches.  There is a lower case font on that cartridge, but out of context the r's looked kind of like n's, so I decided to go all capitols.  

I stamped the phrase "it's cold out there" and the snowflakes on the right side from my new "Winder Wonderland" stamp set from My Craft Spot in blue ink.  Then I blinged up the snowflakes with some small gems in the middle and the word "BRRR" with some Midnight Blue stickles.  If you look carefully, I was able to capture a little bit of the sparkle from the stickles this time!
