Sending Cheer Snowy Scene

As fall gradually gives way to winter, I'm thinking snowflakes and snowy scenes for my cards.  Our 'snowbirds' are leaving, or have left, for warmer climes.  We are staying put, preparing for the cold and snow.  I am choosing to focus on the positive...the pretty snowfalls, warm fires, comfort foods, gatherings, and more time spent home with family and friends.
I love when the sun is low on the horizon, and it's snowing those great big airy flakes, that seem to dance as they float to the ground.  The sky is multi-colored as day creeps toward late afternoon.

For my card, I used stamps from Impression-Obsession.  For the  scene, I placed the WINTERY DAY stamp into my Misti, and inked it with Range Archival inks.  I repeated the stamping as necessary to layer colors.

For the background, I brushed distress inks onto the sky area, and a little on the snow below to reflect the sky.  I also brushed some 'snow' onto the tree branches with the white acrylic paint.

For the verse, I used one of the verses in the LAYERED PINECONE stamp set. 

A few spatters of watered-down white acrylic paint, and some distress ink along the edges, and some layering, finish off the card.

I am adding my card to these challenges:
