Winter or Spring at FSC

Hello and welcome to the first Challenge of 2017 at Fashionable Stamping and it's a very seasonal one 'Winter or Spring'.  For this challenge we have Flonzcraft who are offering one lucky random winner a $20 spend in their online store.
We haven't seen any snow - yet - this winter, so I decided to create my own little  snowy scene.  I used the Winter Wonderland, but masked off the border before inking.  I used Inkylicious Snowy House and Tim Holtz Tree Line stamped over torn paper masks to create their destination.
Whether you're in the depths of Winter or dreaming of Spring, it's up to you what you create and if you need some inspiration, check out the DT cards here, you'll be spoilt for choice.
Don't forget, we are a stamping challenge and your stamping must follow the theme.

I am entering this at
  That's Crafty - Anything Goes
  Artistic Stamper - Anything Goes
  Country View Challenges - Anything Goes

Thanks for visiting, and enjoy your day,
Avril xx

I love this cards to bits Avril as it features two of my favourite stamps by Inkylicious and Crafty Individuals and they work together in perfect harmony. The layout of your card is perfect and I really like the colour of the sky against the tree line too. This one is definitely right up my street. Enjoy your day. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

I adore your winter scene Avril, it feels so tranquil and the little pops of red really draw the eye and I am seeing the winter cabin stamp in a totally different light.

I've got this image of girls and umbrella, but I've never thought of using it this way, incorporated in a winter wonderland with the sentiment border masked off. It's really gorgeous, lots of work I guess, but really worth it.
