Winter Blues?

There are many people who do actually get depressed in the winter because of the lack of sunshine. But I think the snow is so bright that it hasn't seemed gloomy at all yet. So for my "Winter Blues" card (SweetStamps' challenge this week) I've even added flowers...thinking Spring!

Stamp - "Elegant Scrollwork Frame" from SweetStamps
colored with Mepxy alcohol markers #B00, B23, C01
Digi sentiment - Bible verse from WordArtWednesday
Die cuts - "Elegant Leaves" from SweetStamps
Punch - a branch from Sizzix (I think!)
Cardstock - blue is One Heart...One Mind,
white is Paper Studio
Ranger Stickles "Star Dust"
Foam squares - Scrapbook Adhesives
Bakers twine - green (don't know where I got this, 
but i DO know it can be purchased at the Kraft Outlet
Flowers are from my stash

Challenges: - Whoopsi Daisy Tic Tac Toe (flowers, diecut, digi)

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi sweet Sandie! What a blessing to see two of my most favorite challenges combined in this one GORGEOUS card. I love how you used this week's word art/scripture, as I always love seeing God's Word used on cards, and you did such an amazing job with it! I also love how you combined the Winter Blues theme into your card. It's absolutely stunning. Thank you for stopping by both challenges to share your amazing art. It means so much and I thank you for it.
Have a blessed week.
