Impression Obsession Challenge 'Favorite Things'

Good morning everyone, it's time for an IO challenge! This week we're drawing inspiration from the song from The Sound of Music musical, 'My Favorite Things'. The third verse is what inspired me to create this card:

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

Silver white winters appealed to me at this time of year, so I used silver embossing powder to emboss this Santa Bridge scene on water color paper. I then used some reinkers to water color the image. I LOVE the way this looks! Very soft and wintery. 

I used the Snowflake Cover-a-Card stamp to create the subtly patterned background paper.

Now hop on over to the Impression Obsession blog for all the details on how to join in the challenge for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate. For more 'My Favorite Things' inspiration check out the rest of the DT's blogs:
