Oh my!  This was fun and deceptively easy!  I started by stamping my "snowchick" on some white paper and coloring her to my heart's content.  Then I used a pointillism technique to fill in the white space around her.  I die cut my paper and got to work applying my trimmed pine cone petals.  I added some white satin ribbon for a hanger and cut a piece of felt the same size as my paper to "finish" the back. 
Thanks for stopping by!  Don't forget to check out the rest of the hop.  Links for today's project are listed above and you can check out the rest of the tutorials and their links on the Mark's Finest Papers blog. 
Details - Stamps: Holly Jolly Greetings (MFP); Paper: Neenah Solar Crest White; Ink: Tuxedo Black; Accessories: Copic Markers, Nestabilities
