It Won't Be Long Now!

The temperatures have been a real roller coaster here in PA. It will not be long until the first snowy flakes start to fly! This week, the new weekly Challenge #21 at Joan's Gardens, has us following another list of fun instructions which include:Something from Nature but not flowers - Real or handcrafted (such as twigs, corn husks etc.)
Something Punched
Something Green
A background for your focal point such as a Spellbinders Nestie

I used a white A2 card for my base and added a layer of Memory Box dp. My next layer is card stock form DCWV in a pretty shade of apple green. The background for my focal image is a Sizzix EF that I inked in Baja Breeze and Pear Pizzazz ink form SU!. Touches of Stickles were added to the snowy background for sparkle. My punch is what is holding the sentiment and is also from SU!. The focal point from nature is my large snowflake. Ruffled white organza ribbon and a pearl and metal brad are the accents.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Gorgeous!! You are right it won't be long, it is rainy and cold here and I can see snow on Burney Mt. Not looking forward to the cold or the snow.

There's no need to remind me of the colder weather coming.....I'm in total denial after this Indian summer we've had! LOL
I love the combination of Pear and Baja together! That makes a cool background for your card! Great take on the challenge!
