Winter Blues

This week's challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs is Winter Blues. I used the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday for my layout.
My background uses a Tim Holtz technique. I used a distress stain smoosh (picket fence, faded jeans, dusty concord, and weathered wood) and then stamped a snowflake background stamp (Class Act Inc./Chapel Road Artstamps) using picket fence distress stain. I used two Cheery Lynn dies--Border Carnivale and the French Pastry Doily. The vertical ribbon is actually a piece of cardstock that I covered with distress crackle. I love the texture. The sentiment is from Club Scrap. The center snowflake is an oldie from my stash.
