A Wintery Birthday

I received some money for Christmas and decided to buy some new digi stamps with it and, whilst hunting around on the internet, came across The Paper Shelter site and fell in love with their digis. They are just gorgeous! I just had to enter their challenge today using one of my new stamps and totally love this one!
