Winter's Muse

I found
a lovely
challenge site
that has
inspired me
to create
Muse .
The challenge was to create something with a winter theme, predominately blue, some ribbon
and some medium.  You can find the challenge here at Scrap and Skill. Share some love with the ladies there when you visit. :)
I moistened the front of the cardstock with water and scrunched it up in my hands to get a worn tattered look, then when it was dry, it was laid on some puddles of water mist and blue mists and dried with a heat gun. Some stamping, more mist, and then a stencil and molding paste finished off the background work.  Thank you for visiting.
Here are some close ups:

This card won the Winter Challenge at Scrap'N Skill's Challenge site.
