A Winter Celebration Challenge!

Happy Monday Everyone!

This week our challenge over at Exploring Cricut is "Winter Wonderland" - A celebration of winter and snow.  I happened to have the PERFECT cause for this project:
My sister got engaged last week!  During a beautiful, heavy snow, her boyfriend took her to an awesome place around here called Longwood Gardens.  As they were walking around looking at the beautifully decorated Christmas trees, he dropped down on one knee and proposed... How romantic!  I used the Winter Woodland Cricut cartridge for the tree cut.  I added Polar White Flower Soft to all of the white cuts, to give them a "real snow" look.  I'll be sending this card out to them tomorrow :)

Please join our challenge this week by sharing your own creation celebrating winter and snow, and share it with us on our challenge page over at Exploring Cricut - We'd love for you to inspire us as well!  Happy Winter!
