Sticking together!

I created this card for the Timeless Tuesday Challenge on the Flourishes blog where Allison has challenged us to create a Christmas card using non-traditional colors - aka no red or green!  Now, I just had to make the little cardinal red, but don't think that will disqualify me! :-)  This is also for Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday Challenge...a great layout!  I can't seem to capture the sparkle of glitter with taking photos in artificial light, but it really does glisten IRL!  I added some Polar White Flower Soft to the mitten cuffs and the large "circle" element was substituted with the largest of SU's Bigz Snow Flurry dies.  I stamped the image on X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copics.

STAMPS: Warm Winter Wishes (Flourishes)
PAPER: Mitten Weather DP by Cosmo Cricket, Kraft, Aqua Mist
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black, Chocolate Chip
ACCESSORIES: Corner Rounder, Aqua Mist satin ribbon by PTI, Flower Soft, Dazzling Diamonds glitter by SU, Bigz Snow Flurry die by SU, Copics.
