Snowy Hug Thank You

Well, it's another snow day as ice and snow have hit us once again.  I'm sooo over this winter weather already!  But I figured since it was snowing outside, I might as well make another winter card, this time a Thank You card for some of those great Christmas presents!  I followed the sketch from Simon Says Stamp and I love how it turned out!  The paper is from this year's Bo Bunny winter collection and I love the brown and teal together.  I colored Snowy Hug with my copics, distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain (my favorite color!), and added some diamond stickles everywhere!  I then added a few snowflakes, some ribbon, and a computer generated sentiment. 

Sorry the pics are so dark, I'm still searching for my camera charger and have been forced to resort to the cell phone - not the best quality, but hopefully you can get the picture!  Here's another angle:

One more angle...

And one of the inside, with Winter Tilda with Skates.  I hope you like it!
