Let it Snow!!
OK - so maybe I can hold off on the snow for awhile - although there is a rumor that we may see some snow flurries here in central Indiana on Monday - yikes!! Snow before Halloween is never a good sign for the upcoming winter. This is my card for today's Hanna Stamps challenge over on SCS - Cindy challenged us to use snow on our card. I used my Cuttlebug snowflakes embossing folder for the background and then stitched a big snowflake using a Bazzill In Stitch'z template. I love the In Stitch'z templates - they are so fun - a bit time-consuming - but the end result is definitely worth it. I used just regular old DMC embrodiery floss to do the stitching rather than the Bazzill stuff - it saves a bit of money and I think turned out just as nice. I used Ski Bunny Hanna on my card - I just stamped the top half of her and colored her in with Copics - the sentiment is from this set as well. The bottom edge was done with the Embossed Diamond edge punch by Martha Stewart. I am not sure where the ribbon came from - I found it in my stash and the colors in it were really the inspiration for this card. Thanks so much for stopping by!!
