"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?" by Marianne Williamson

Winter Wonderland - ATC

This ATC was inspired by the photo I took of our front yard this weekend after the snow. (See the previous post). It's been a while since I made an ATC just for fun and not for a swap. I really enjoyed making it. The background is gray paint ( I didn't have gray so I mixed black and white paint until I got the proper shade of gray). The bottom of the background is just an iridescent glitter. The tree came from a digital stamp CD that my good friend Penny gave to me. I really love this willow tree image. I cut out some of the areas between the limbs so the background could show through. I also glittered up the tree a little. The first photo really shows off the glitter. Then I just printed out the words "Winter Wonderland" and dabbed a little of the gray paint around the edges. The ATC turned out just lovely!
