'ABC' Challenges - Photo Inspiration and Creative Card Crew #27 - Snow and Ice

Hello dear blog followers and friends.  We have a great challenge for you this week at 'ABC' Challenges!! We would like to see what card(s) this photo inspires you to make to share with us:
What do you all think of this photo for an inspiration challenge?  I saw this photo on face book a few weeks ago?  I could make this the Jan 14 challenge.  Or do you this this is too hard for a challenge?

As you can tell my by card this week I was quite literally inspired by this photo.  I remembered I had this great stamp set from a while ago that I thought would go just perfect for this challenge.  What do you think? 

Can you see the snowflakes that I embossed in white?  They really only show up when you tip the card slightly and then they are kind of like a watermark effect.  Cool but disappointing that they didn't show up as I had hoped. So then I decided to put the bigger "blops" of snow falling down. 
 Lots of puffy white snow and one poor little cold red bird.  

Here's another look and the inside too:

I can't wait to see how this photo has inspired you!  The other fine gals at 'ABC' Challenges have also got some beautiful cards to share with you - please pop on in and visit them.  
I am also entering this card in the following challenge: Creative Card Crew Challenge #27 - Snow and Ice.
