Dies R Us Anything Goes Challenge

Happy New Year!!!

Dies R Us challenge this week is a fave of mine.....anything goes!

I used to love to go sledding as a kid, and spent HOURS outside sledding with my neighborhood friends during Christmas vacation. 
This card reminds me of all the fun I had back then!

My hubby loved to sled also, in fact, we have his old childhood sled decorated outside by the townhouse door:

For the the background of my card, I created some snow with white acrylic paint, flecked with a toothbrush. I also added some to the sled when I had finished assembling it.

The sled is from Memory Box. I cut it out with a piece of  brown card stock that I had embossed with a wood grain folder. Then I added some red and silver runners.

For the arrangement, I used Cheery Lynn's Christmas wreath and Pine branches, and a few pine sprigs from Impression obsession.

I got the inspiration for this card from several other can check them out herehere and here!

Have a great day!
