Winter Blessings

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Design aIs anyone else in full winter card making mode.  As the weather turns cooler is seems only appropriate that I make cards glittering with snow.  This sweet new stamp set from Elizabeth Craft Designs plus some clear glitter creates the perfect backdrop for this fn winter card.
