Snow showers and a new home


Hi all. Super quick post today. 

This card is for my neice who has just moved into her first home.  I thought I would combine it with the LESS IS MORE challenge which is one layer week with a theme of snow. 

So here's how I made it.  Early Espresso card base.  I then rollered with the Neighbourhood wheel (now retired) in Whisper white and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I added snowflakes from Serene Snowflakes and then using a white gel pen I added some fallen snow onto my street. 

I hand wrote New Home as I thought it went with the style of the drawn houses.  

We woke up to a white wonderland this morning but thankfully it was only a dusting.  Keep warm. x
