Snow Festival/Four Seasons

Well as you may have guessed, I took off work yesterday, so I got two cards posted, one yesterday and one this morning.  How great is that.  I did get some of the other work done that I actually took off for, but this was the fun stuff.  And, I was able to use another sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  I had been wanting to use this new hostess stamp set called "Four Seasons" and when I saw their sketch, I knew I could use it.  My only problem was after the card was finished I spritzed it with my shimmer white paint mix and it smeared the sentiment, but I am still trying to decide how to fix it.  Maybe I will add another banner and put the sentiment on it.  Wow why did I not think about that before I took the photos. lol

Now here is a close up of the center of the card and hopefully you can see some of that shimmer I added.

And a side view!

And the inside!

Still loving this paper!  Makes a wonderful inside to the card.
