Winter romance

Hello everyone,
Today I'm here with a post of Julia's Christmas card.  Her request of me this year was to have a scene and she wanted it to "outdo Miss Kathy's and Peter's cards".  That was a tall order…I'm not sure I accomplished that, but she was certainly happy with the result. :)  I actually tried something new…I tried my hand at painting…but it was just the teal outbursts coming out from around the template cut.  I think it turned out OK.  This is a Northwoods stamp and it certainly was a bit intimidating to tackle!  The card is quite sparkly…though it's hard to see in the photo so I'm including a closeup.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
A creative romance: Sparkle at Christmas Challenge
Brown Sugar Challenge: #74 Winter

Hope you are all enjoying the last several days of 2013.  With the way the times are today, I don't know whether I'm excited about 2014…or anxious about the unknown…  Oh boy!  Thanks for stopping by today..Margaret
