Happy Winter

Supplies : paper by Basic Grey; ink and cardstock by CTMH; Snowfall stamp set and button by Papertrey Ink; Silver Embroidery Floss by DMC; Ribbon from LSS

It's week 32 for Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge and this week there were 2 added challenges to the card. The first was the sketch. The second part is what made the challenge a bit harder, at least for me. Use one colored cardstock, 2 stamps, 2 embellishments, and 5 pieces of paper. Counting my sentiment I got in the 5 papers, the button and then ribbon were my 2 embellies and I stamped 2 mittens and 2 snowflake circles for the mittens. I stitched some silver embroidery floss to highlight the snowflakes and then used it to stitch on the button as well as wrap around the ribbon. Today I'll be reorganizing my craft stuff, it's become such a mess! Don't forget to visit Sparkle's Post for the challenge and links to the other cards. Thanks for visiting and have a lovely Sunday!
