2X4 ... Snow!








Snow










Theme Thursday's challenge this week is to try out a new size. 2X4's ..... I think it's a great proportion. I really love the elongated shaped as a change from the atc size which is more boxy.

I made this piece using a Christmas card from a friend ... inside the card, she mentioned that the image was so cute and was just begging to be made into something fun. I roughed it up a little bit with fine grade sandpaper. Stamped "snow!" Adhered vintage silver tinsel and added black photo corners. Oh - and also an old button.

Thanks for looking - your comments are always appreciated :)

Hi Kimmie ~ I haven't done this swap yet, I'm running a little behind with OWOH and all :)
The gray tones and trim are so excellent in this creation, can't wait to try a 2x4 :)

Love the retro silver tinsel. This new size was perfect for that Christmas card. The image gives a fun perspective of all the snow we are digging out of. Excellent work, as always.
