Winter Sleigh Rides.

Have you ever been on a horse drawn sleigh ride? We spent a few winters (when we lived in the cold part of the province) where they held an annual horse sleigh ride. It was amazing! It was roughly -25C below (-13F) and boy did we need some good warm blankets and hot chocolate to warm us up.

One of my favourite things of all time is matching unusual colour combinations where traditional colours are expected. Winter cards are often green, red, navy blue, white...well you get the point.
I decided that the Kim Hughes' Mocha Chica paper would be nicely paired with Aged Sheet Music Scrapblock TM inked in espresso.

You'll notice that I cut a strip from the front and added that strip to the inside of the card and placed the scallop edge to the front.
