'ABC' Challenges - Happy Birthday & City Crafters Week 142 Winter Blues

Hello friends! I pulled out this stamp set last week to make my card for the 'ABC' Challenges photo inspiration and just kept playing with it. The theme this week at 'ABC' Challenges is "Happy Birthday" - we want to see your beautiful birthday cards.  I have two friends in our card exchange group with birthdays this month so I went with a winter theme for their birthday cards.  I used some dry embossing - one of my favorite techniques for adding interest and depth to my cards.  Just a few scattered snowflakes placed here and there (in Pool Party ink) and then I glued the tree and bird that I had snipped out over that layer.

I am also entering this card in the City Crafters Week 142 Challenge - Winter Blues.

As promised (to myself) I have also finished the card - have a look...
 Hope you like my card and I really hope that I've inspired you to make a card to share with us this week at 'ABC' Challenges.  Pop on over to the 'ABC' Challenges site and check out what the other gals have made too - we have such a lovely and talented DT.

Thanks so much for visiting me today! Til next time... hugs and happy crafting!
