Winter Wonderland

Good Morning,

I am continuing on with the theme of Christmas in July.  I was in Joanne's a couple of months ago and I went back to the bargain bin and found this really cool magazine with all of these goodies for $5.00!  I wish I had bought a second one for a giveaway but I just wasn't thinking about that.  The magazine was from 2016 but who cares?

It came with 2 stamps, two embossing folders and a six pack of matching paper!  

Here is the card I made:

This was one of the hardest stamps I have ever colored!  I started with copic markers, I didn't like the way it turned out so I then tried gel pens, nope, didn't like it, so I then got out my colored pencils and finally got the results that I wanted!

Here is the inside of the card:

The sentiment stamp I used is so old, I don't know where I got it.  I think it is probably 7 or 8 years old.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
