What a fun challenge, Esther! Once again, your card is stunning and loaded with fine details that capture my eye. The tiny detail of the doodling around the globe is so subtle yet adds so much to the entire design. Love it!

Great scene inside the globe and I love the wood base you gave to it and the pinecones and greenery at that bottom with the twine is a great touch!

Lin said...

I love your snowglobe, Esther, the addition of the pinecone and pine sprig on the outside is lovely! Thanks for playing with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

Greatcard - and using the snow globe for our card base - what a good idea. I sort of had to think a little bit as I didn't have a snow globe but I see I wasn't the only one that went "out of the box". So much detail in your snowglobe.
