Celebration Card Using Art by Miran Winter Alyssa for November Progressive Challenge

Hello friends!  Time is flying by and it will be Thanksgiving and then Christmas before you know it.  We had cooler weather here for a couple days; which was really nice.  I love the fall; with cooler temperatures.  I just don't like the really cold weather.  

It is time for another Art by Miran November Progressive Facebook Challenge. Mi Ran has created another gorgeous image, named Winter Alyssa.  I love this sweet image.  If you haven't participated in Art by Miran Progressive Challenge previously; you may purchase this sweet image for a reduced price, create something with her, enter in our ABM Facebook Progressive challenge and then you receive the next month's image free.  We look forward to your creations.

Winter Alyssa - Isn't she lovely!?
