Let it snow!

 Welcome back for a new challenge at the Double D!

 We're in the midst of winter and snow has been swirling all around us but thankfully avoided us.  Snow is beautiful when it's falling silently to blanket the ground and it's the new challenge theme at the Double D Challenge Blog!
Show us your interpretation of the mood board provided below. 
There's a fun prize along with Creative Badges for winning entries. 
Carta Bella Farmhouse Christmas Stamps

I was inspired by the stark, wintry appearance of the tree limbs and the bluish hue on the second and third photos.  How amazing is the intricate design of snowflakes?

The double layer base has added dimension using foam tape.  

 I don't have a large snowflake die and used a die cut with lots of swirls as the focal point.  I cut some small flakes from a corner die cut and adhered them around the sentiment.  The word SNOW is cut and layered four times for dimension.

When I saw this card I really wanted to get my fleece jacket on. It has the icy and chilled look to the snow that I remember. Of course, I have not actually seen snow for years, but I remember that when it is falling, it is beautiful
