Over the River and Through the Woods

The Vintage Winter kit from Swirlydoos, with papers from Bo Bunny's Winter Wishes collection and a variety of coordinating embellishments from companies such as Prima Marketing, Kaisercraft and Darice had me searching through my saved images in Pinterest for this one - an old-fashioned scene of a frosted woodland. I actually cropped the picture and enlarged it a bit to bring the bridge and surrounding foliage to the front.

The Winter Wishes sheet with varied details over a birch-like pattern makes a lovely background for my photo and the Prima Felt Gate, cut in half down the middle, makes a perfect frame.
I've gone deep into my stash for the flowers and icons, finding a variety of Prima flowers, bark embellishments and a wood icon from the Salvage District Collection. After scattering a few Kaisercraft pearls on the edges, I "frosted" the flowers here and there with the Aleen's Glitter Snow that came in the kit.

To add a more wintery feeling to my layout, I cut some chipboard icicle borders on my Cameo and covered them with the Glitter Snow. The large strip was placed on the upper border of the page; several more were adhered under the photo and under the flower cluster. (I had one strip left; this I saved for later.)
Lastly, I adhered several Darice Rusted Tin Snowflakes around the page to give a bit of interest.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog; I truly appreciate your interest...
