Warm Wishes





The Shabby Tea Room challenge theme is Winter Wonderland and we were to be inspired by this beautiful picture! I used the sketch for Crazy 4 Challenges for the layout. This card is also for the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge blog - use black & white with a splash of 1 other color. This was a quick & easy card with dry embossing of the Aqua Mist panel using a 5 x 7 snowflake EF, a punched border in black, some adhesive rhinestones, paper-pieced mittens with Flower Soft on the cuffs, some silver bow wire and a button finish it off. The card is 4 1/2 inches square.
STAMPS: Winter Mittens (Verve), Vintage Oval Frame (Verve)
PAPER: Aqua Mist (PTI), Black, White
INK: Versafine Onyx Black
ACCESSORIES: CB snowflake EF, MS border punch, Black rhinestones, Bow wire, Vintage button, Vintage oval frame die (Verve), Foam dots
