Keep Calm and Smile On

I love snow... on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.  I love the peaceful calm, the quiet, the chill until I have to go somewhere.  My next card is really for me.  I tend to get very anxious when it snows on a workday.  The sentiment is from MFP's Winter Crocus set.  The tree image is from "Chill is in the Air"

Today's challenge for MFP's Simple Salutations is to make a black and white card.  I had to think a while on this one.   I don't have any of their silhouette stamps, which would have made this easier.  Once I decided on the tree, it all fell together.   I immediately grabbed my window die and remembered my new brick embossing folder.  Windows scream shaker card to me and I never have enough in my stash, or any, since they are a family favourite.  I was all out of microbeads so I improvised with punched snowflakes and white microfine glitter.  I love how it creates a frosted look on the window.  I will have to do this again.

 MFP's Simple Salutations - Black and White
Crazy for Challenges - Photo Inspiration  (I used the black and white colour skeme)
GE WE Challenge - Christmas or Winter
