Here in the PNW we are having some of the warmest January days ever recorded....makes for some striking scenes - intense blue of the sky, winter browns, and an amazing variety of greens.  Across the country, winter January looks quite different! My hometown in Massachusetts all greys and lots of swirling white.

For this card I used a long-retired Close To My Heart set, Four Seasons,a brand new Verve sentiment, and the Less Is More Sketch #14 - except it was rotated and I took a liberty with sentiment placement. Each tree was inked in Champagne ink and tops sponged with various pigment inks. The winter tree snowflakes were dotted with a sparkling Gelly Roll pen which has a very subtle shine that doesn't show in the photo. The sentiment was inked in Cashmere ink. (CTMH)
