Its New Release Time at Inky Impressions!
I am also a new Inket!! Yes, I have been added to the Inky Impressions Design Team!

That's right!! Inky Impressions has a new release today, November 18!!  Come take a look at the super cute and festive digis they have released!  I used the super cute holiday baker for my card! 

I used colors that are not very usual for the holiday but I liked to challenge myself.  I took me a while to figure them out plus I wanted to match the paper.  I thought the 3-D window and snowy scene added a special touch!
