Winter Wonderland: Atlantic Hearts Sketch #189 and Christmas Cards All Year 'Round December

Hi!  It's me again.  Twice in one day!  That's what happens during a snow storm.  YAY!  We just found out that we have a snowday tomorrow, too.  Working at a school has it's perks sometimes.

Anyway, for this card I knew I wanted to use the Atlantic Hearts sketch for challenge #189 found here:  Atlantic Hearts #189
And I also wanted to enter it into the Christmas Cards All Year 'Round December Challenge.  Here is the link to that one:  Christmas Cards All Year 'Round December

I had an idea in my head and just had to find the right paper for it.  I knew that this paper from "Swan Lake" CTMH was just what I needed for the background.  I then stamped the sweet images from the CTMH stamp set called "Snow Shadows".  I stamped the main images with Slate CTMH ink, but added the dotty snow with Whisper CTMH ink.  I matted the images on Slate CTMH cardstock.  I then added a ribbon from my stash and metallic stickers I found in my Christmas supplies.  The greeting is cut from a zip strip off one of the pages from the CTMH "Oh Deer" papers.  And that's it.  Nice and easy.  
Thanks for popping over.
