Warm and Cozy Christmas

Well, I guess I have moved on from Halloween and Fall cards to cards for the Holiday season. I can't believe it is the middle of October and I know the rest of the year will fly by. The card I am posting today is based on the sketch challenge at Get Sketchy and the color combo is this week's challenge at Color Throwdown. I love these colors together!

This cute image is from Gina K. It is colored with copics, the hat and scarf are paper pieced, and I applied glitter with a glue pen to the snow. The pretty DP is from Memory Box and the edges are sponged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tea Dye. The border punch is Martha Stewart. Then I added lace to the bottom.

I always finish the inside of my cards but I don't usually post them. But I love how this sentiment goes so cute with the stamp!

Thanks for stopping by,
