"Wonderful Winter Wonderland" Card for Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #207

It's Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #207 with a theme of  "Use Blue".  We are sponsored by QKR Stampede and I prepared a handmade card with a "Snowy Cabin" QKR digital image for the said challenge:

I had my cardstock embossed with a snowy effect and I later on have my digital image trimmed and popped up on my card center for dimension together with the "Wonderful" felt blue label embossed in silver from All About Scrapbooking.  I just added the finishing touches on top and bottom with trims of my handmade card for a very Winter Wonderful Wonderland handmade card.
