Sweet Stampin' #42!

Hi everyone and welcome to the #42 challenge at the Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog ... our theme this week is 'Winter Wonderland' -- how yummy!


Our temps here in central NC have still been in the 90's and 100's this week, although a hurricane is fixing to blow through in the next couple of days off of our eastern coast, so it should cool things down just a bit.  Usually, after a hurricane comes through, the weather is GOR-JUS afterward ... crossing my fingers for a glorious Labor Day Weekend!

So my Winter Wonderland card uses the Flourishes 'Let Them Eat Cake' stamp set -- I saw the cake layers as a potted tree for this design and added some PTI stamps as embellies and some brand new SU! silver tinsel.  What do you all think???

Please visit the SSCB to be inspired by the other DT girlies wonderful creations and then give this wonderful 'Winter Wonderland' themed challenge a try ... I cannot wait to see what you create :)
