So here is my card for the challenge inspiration,  where I expressed a cold winter scene using Snow Covered Stamp set and Antique Frame Dies from Penny Black .

I stamped Snow Covered Stamp on a piece of heavy weight cold press watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black Ink then I lightly watercolored the image and background. I added splatters of white acrylic ink and let it dry.

Next, I cut the panel using  Antique Frame Dies and then colored edges using Gathered Twigs ink. I love how the Antique Frame added a unique mood to my colored panel. I stamped a sentiment from Simon Christmas Wishes on thr center using Archival Cobalt ink. Then I foam mounted the panel onto A2 sized 110 Neenah White Card Base which had hand been distressed with Gathered Twigs on four edges, too. 

I embellished my card using Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix and Brown Twine. 

So now it’s YOUR turn. 
 Happy Crafting
