This was super fun to make - first I stamped the images (pine branch and pine cone) in blue, then used Gina K. white ink with a watercolor brush, dampened with water and slowly brushed on the snow. I added some glitter to the branches as well, randomly, to give an ice effect.  I used some delicate thread to "dress" the buttons (so they were not naked).  Sentiment in black ink.  What do you think?
