JUST US GIRLS #274 - Word Challenge

Hello and Happy New Year! Are you all ready to start 2015 off with a great challenge? Of course you are! And we have a fun one at JUST US GIRLS! Sharyn is our hostess this week for the word challenge, and she picked the word Winter! What does it mean to you? Here's how I interpreted it:

 here's the inside:

I used a winter themed paper collection for my card, then found these hoarded foam glittery snowflakes in my stash. I opted for a birthday card, as I have a few relatives and friends with January birthdays, so this will be perfect for one of them! 

I hope you get the chance to play along this week at Just Us Girls! While there, please check out what my teammates, and our January Guest Designer, Judy, have made to inspire you. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!
