Hello!!!
Happy Saturday and another great challenge at Kraftin Kimmie!! The theme this week is Slippery when wet.  I immediately thought of snow and winter. I looked over my stamps to see which one to use and as soon as I saw Talullahbelle  I thought of  the fairy Periwinkle ( Tinkerbell sister) and snow.  Love how the card turned out and the monochromatic color scheme.
