Diana *Day 5*

Yesterday we had a warm sunny photo by Diana, today I've chosen its opposite:Isn't it pretty, though? I love the winter wonderland look where each branch is coated in sugary frost and sparkles in the sun. I especially love looking at it in beautiful photographs like this (not in real life!). Diana did such a great job of capturing the feeling one has when they look at the fresh snow and blue skies. So refreshing!

Here is my card--I was especially inspired by the colors in Diana's picture:
