Lots of Snow....

Our Tuesday Throwdown Challenge is a White Christmas.
This weeks Sponsor is Robyn's Fetish.
 Now here in the desert Southwest we do not get snow.
 When my SIL was in Iran a few years ago I went to spend 
Thanksgiving with my daughter in Alaska.
 Living in the desert I have never experienced so much snow ice and cold! 
It was 10 degrees the first day and then plummeted to 40 degrees below zero 
a few days later. I was struck how in nature there is very little
 color just white with shades of greyish blue in sky, ground and all foliage.
 The dp I used was a grey blue with snowflakes on it.
 Using some paints I added the greyish trees and white snow.
 The base is torn strips run thru the dotted swiss folder and 
all is stitched around. I wanted the sweet little Rudolph
 to pop with all his bright color against the background.
 Very simple but I like the way it looks cold and wintery.
