Winter at the lake

Winter at the lake - I found a new place to get digi stamps today and they had a challenge to make a Christmas card even though it is spring. This is the image I chose to work with. It was a big challenge for me as the stamp is not a winter scene. I worked with my snow writer for the first time. It was fun to think outside of the box.
