Winter Wonderland

Good morning everyone!
 It's time for a new challenge at Moving Along With The Times!
This week it's Hazel's turn to host the challenge and she chose the wonderful theme...
Winter Wonderland
For my DT card I chose a fabulous image from my PrintMaster Platinum DVD called "Mailing Letter To Santa".  It was originally a B&W image... so I changed it to a sepia tone to give it an aged look. The Post Card is from Teresa Collins and the Postage Stamp is from Whimsy Stamps... both stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa. The background is embossed with the Cuttlebug Snowflakes folder, the Lamppost was cut with a Tim Holtz die and I used a Recollections punch for the snowflakes.  All of the edges have been distressed with Walnut Stain Distress ink... added some tiny cream pearls and there you have it!

Now head on over to the challenge blog and check out all of the gorgeous creations by the other team members!
That's it for now... enjoy your day and thanks so much for stopping by!
