Winter Wishes in September

It is September and I'm super excited because it's my most favoritest season of the year...Autumn! I'm itching to get going on my autumn colored and themed cards, but first I'm looking ahead to winter. Now I know that it seems a tad bit jumping the gun, but I saw a card I just had to CASE and I ended up using one of my favorite embossing folders--which just happens to be winter themed...sooooo....I have a winter card to start off September!

This card was inspired by one of the bonus cards featured in the newest Paper Works Magazine (Sept/Oct 2010). It was called Dramatic Anniversary and I LOVED how the embossing was the main focus. I kept the same layout idea...just changed everything else.

I used the embossing folder "Snowflakes" (Cuttlebug) for the embossing and kept this a simple Navy and White card. The sentiment is from the Snow Happy set by Paper Makeup Stamps. That is by FAR my most favorite winter themed set. Period! I liked the touch of the snowflake brad on the bow...just wish it was a shiny silver...but it still works great!
