Craft Us Crazy Challenge #2

WOWSA!!! WOWSA!!! WOWSA!!!  We can't believe the amazing participation we have had in our first challenge over at Craft Us Crazy!!!  We are all so excited and hope that all of you will join us again in our second challenge!  This challenge is a "Winter Theme" challenge.  We are delighted to have Meljen's Designs as our sponsor for this challenge.  I'm so excited to work with this cute image called Cozy Winter Owl....the name is even cute!  You can find him here.  I used papers from the Hot Chocolate line by Fancy Pants on my project.  I forgot to make a note of which cartridge I used for my background snowflake but I cut it with my cricut and then glittered it up.  I used a snow writer to get that awesome dimension in my snow and then added glitter for sparkle.  You can find this amazing Hot Chocolate kit at Crop Chocolate....appropriate huh?  Melissa has graciously donated 4 of her lovely digi images of the winner's choice for this challenge!  She has such a fun style...I can't wait to play with more of her images!  Here is a little bit of information on Meljen's Designs:
