First taste of snow

Finally I've had enough free time to create another card. There had been a lot going on here the last couple of weeks with my brother and a friend of mine getting married, me going on holidays...
I am back from Stockholm for 3 days now and I couldn't wait to get started again. So here's my first card after that long break of crafting. It shows one of my favourite Karen's Doodles Images  -  "First taste of snow". It reminds me of myself when I was a kid, as I always tried to catch some snowflakes with my tongue and I still do nowadays...

Sketch: Karen's Doodles
